Jaden Smith to greet Klaatu

Remember this...

The Hollywood Reporter carry the news that the first meeting of Klaatu with a human being in THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL will be with a 8 year old kid played by Jaden Smith, the son of Will.

I very much doubt that Smith will be 'like father, like son' in the scene but hey, any chance to upload one of my favourite parts of INDEPENDENCE DAY will always be taken by me.

Scott Derrickson (THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE) will direct the sci-fi remake of the classic 50's movie, with Keanu Reeves (as Klaatu), Jennifer Connelly (scientist Helen Benson), Kathy Bates and Jon Hamm.

The film is currently shooting out in Vancouver.
