As polarizing of a figure that Zimmerman is, the film is sure to spark controversy among movie goers. In a statement sent to reporters, Smith stated, Its obvious that hes not Americas sweetheart right now but his story is intriguing and it needs to be heard. Hitler wasnt popular. Does that mean his story is any less interesting? Of course not. Slave masters arent popular but 12 Years a Slave was phenomenal. Wait until you

Not. Watching. Isn’t Will Smith gay?
First third: Trayvon is a monster. A burglar, a fighter, a vicious thug. George Zimmerman is a good family man and neighborhood guardian. Trayvon attacks George (unprovoked) Trayvon does serious damage. George is on the verge of death when he manages to defend himself and survive.
Last two-thirds: Saint Trayvon is lauded by the media and the president. Everyone loves that sweet young boy. George Zimmerman is hounded and persecuted by a vengeful country.
It might make a lot of people really think about things.
his hooide is furry
oh brother eye roll
My guess is that Will Smith is just trying to help his son break into the business. He’s not doing it for the money.
I don’t think there are that many people who really want to see it. Special screenings or straight to DVD only.
How many people will pay to see this film...?
His kid is not a chip off the old block...
Saint Trayvon is so over.
Another losing movie project that will only be popular on BET
Al Sharpton as technical adviser?
That would make a great bumper sticker. LOL!!!
Rachel Jeantel will be played by Sheila Jackson Lee.
If this movie portrays Zimmerman as a violent, racist murderer of an innocent young black child, I hope Zimmerman will sue Will Smith for every penny he has.
“My guess is that Will Smith is just trying to help his son break into the business. Hes not doing it for the money.”
I believe his son has already done several movies.
And no, it won’t be a commercial success unless the actors aren’t getting paid at all and the film crew is getting paid minimum wage.
I wonder who Smith will be casting for his epic movie about all the black on white mob beatings and killings?
He has done a few movies, just nothing on his own yet. His father has been involved in every movie he has done.
That’s probably why, for a Hollywood kid, he hasn’t had more success.
Will we have the scene where St. Trayvon is researching alternate methods of making “purple drank”?
What about his various burglaries?
What about his other violent acts that got him kicked out of school and his mother’s home?
The movie will cast the part of Zimmerman with the least Hispanic actor they can find. Probably be one who can do a convincing skinhead.
About $300 million or so.
I would agree that his father would be smarter to encourage his son to develop his own talents instead of continually opening doors for him.
He’s got to open a few for himself if he’s going to get anywhere.
They may have to end it with Zimmerman being arrested over his ex-wife's complaints in order to get Smith what he wants.
Nothing like stirring the racism pot.
Thanks...I need brain bleach now...
I watched him and his daddy in After Earth (only because it was free). Talk about a no-talent nimrod. He has about as much presence as a fence post. His daddy bought him a starring role and he was able to do nothing with it - literally.
Jaden Smith ? He’s too short and petite (not to mention too fair-skinned) to play the hulking Saint Skittles.
That and he's comically bad.
Good evening,young man.I'm the neighborhood watch captain.
Smith is playing his “folk” like a Stradivarius. He knows that a black victimhood flick will attract the maximum number of freeloading maggots. Afterall, they MUST be victims, otherwise they’d have to assume responsibility for their lives.
Dang! Now that was seriously funny.
Cast Maya Angelou Hologram!!
I said I want two fried chickens and a coke!
True, but that may not be his genre. If I were a Hollywood producer, I’d probably tell him that he needs to find himself to see how he fits in before trying for more parts.
It’s probably in part because his parents are really messing with his head.
Sure hope that T.M. is portrayed as the drug using thug that he was
Perfectly cast there. I wonder if she will use the line, “That’s retarded sir....”
They won’t let go of this! It’s a perfect opportunity for them to “prove” that we are all evil and racist.
The only one I can think of was the actor that played Ramone on Seinfeld as the pool boy. He was supposed to be hispanic but he looked as white as you can get.
I wonder if Will Smith will cut Zimmerman in on the profits, since Zimmerman gave Smith the idea for the movie?
That was like two years ago dude.
Will Trayvon be doing selfies with the guns and flying the bird too. Will Obama be the surrogate father? Will he be mixing the juice with the skittles for a quick high? Will he be kicked out of school? There’s a culture war going on and the war is against common sense.
I thought he gives most of it to Scientology.
His son has been in many movies. Karate Kid, Karate Kid 2, The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Good Lord Bird, After Earth, and The Pursuit of Happyness.
