Jared Leto to replace Will Smith in Brilliance

Movie News

Jared Leto is in talks to replace Will Smith in “Brilliance”, Legendary’s adaptation of the Marcus Sakey novel, says THR.

Julius Onah directs the project, based on a script by “Jurassic Park” scribe David Koepp.

Noomi Rapace also stars in the film.

Sakey’s book takes place in a world where a rare set of people are born with extraordinary abilities and are called “brilliants.”

While talks are still quite early on, if Leto decides to take on the role, he’ll play a federal agent with great hunting gifts who is drafted to hunt down a terrorist, another such brilliant who intends to start a civil war.

Smith quit the film at the end of May, citing scheduling clashes.
