No official plot yet.
- Arash Amel is currently scripting. (2/17/12)
- Despite the outcome of the previous film, the studio is looking to bring back Will Smith as "Robert Neville."
- Back when the project was still thought to be a prequel, Will Smith revealed some potential plot details: "...it’s essentially the fall of the last city – the last stand of Manhattan. The movie would be…within the body of the movie D.C. and then Manhattan would fall as the last city. It’s a really cool idea trying to figure it out…there’s a reason why we have to take a small band and we have to get into D.C. So we have to make our way from New York to D.C. and then back to New York."
- D.B. Weiss scripted an early draft (back when it was a prequel) that was based on a detailed outline that was discussed by Will Smith, Francis Lawrence and producers Akiva Goldsman and James Lassiter.
- When the project was still a prequel it was said that original director Francis Lawrence would return, but there's no word if that's still the case.
- When the project was original announced several years ago it was said to be a prequel, but now it looks like the studio is pursuing a sequel.
