Once upon a time Fox wanted Will Smith to star in the fantasy movie The City that Sailed. It didn't work out, but now things have worked out differently and Smith has signed on with Shawn Levy to direct.
It's about a street magician that became separated from his young daughter. She ends up in London and through the power of magical candles that grant wishes she causes Manhattan to break away and set sail toward England.
Since Will Smith has sworn off blockbusters, this must be a very low budget indie film. He may even have to offer Fox the chance to cast his daughter to save money. There is no date yet for the movie to even begin filming, so he may film his other low budget experiment, Independence Day 2, first.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
