Will Smith is using his Hollywood clout to develop a film which will be a modern day adaptation of the biblical story of Job. In the Bible, Job was tested by God after Satan said that Job only served God because He offered His protection to Job.
The film, which is said to be written by one of the writers of the critically acclaimed film The Fighter, is described as follows:
It’s about a man [who is living] the American dream. He’s got the nice house, white picket fence, great kids, great wife, nice cars. God and the devil get together every thousand years to bet on a man’s life, and the fate of the world is at stake. What all of us get hit with in a lifetime, this man gets hit with in one week. And it’s about whether or not he can still pick himself up from that and survive it. It’s a dramedy. At it’s heart, it’s a comedy — but it’s got, obviously, a real dramatic core to it.
