5 Things Will Smith Should Make Before He Does Another Sci-Fi Blockbuster

1. Hitch 2.

Hitch is my favorite movie of all time. I basically watch it monthly and you probably do too thanks to TBS. It is one of the highest grossing romantic comedies ever, and when ‘RomCom Con’ inevitably becomes a real thing, surely there will be a cast reunion panel. That classic flashback scene where Hitch is an awkward, clumsy, book dropping nerd is just way too real, but it’s also relatable which is why the movie gives hopeless romantics a glimmer of hope that one day, they too can be better at dating and not scaring their crushes away. That’s why we want — no, we need more. We want to know how Albert and Allegra are handling marriage and if Hitch and Sara ever tied the knot and lived extraordinary lives together. I’ve never started an internet petition, but if ever there were a cause worth fighting for it’s a sequel to Hitch.

2. A film that is gritty and violent, with a borderline excessive amount of foul language.

After turning down the role of Django it has become clear that Big Will is extremely cautious about his family-friendly public image. Whether he rejected the part because of the movie’s graphic violence or because he wanted to be THE star, and felt Leo & Christoph would block his shine, it was a disappointing decision to say the least. Luckily Jamie Foxx performed brilliantly, but we still need to see Will in a film with Tarantino levels of explicit and genius alike.

3. Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air: The Movie.

I know what you’re thinking – that’d be scary because there is a huge risk of ruining the entire franchise, but as Will’s character in After Earth says: danger is real, but fear is a choice. This is worth taking a leap of faith for. As one of many fans that’ve seen every single episode numerous times, it would be stimulating to get a fresh dose of one of the greatest sitcoms ever now that all of the characters are older. We don’t even care which Aunt Viv you cast this time around, just make sure not to bring back Will’s father and leave us weeping in the theater.

4. Another rap album.

You can make an argument that Will Smith is the most underappreciated rapper of all time. After all, he did win the first rap Grammy ever, folks. His relatable, often funny storytelling through lyrics resulted in some timeless classics, yet people call him corny for finding ways to articulate rhymes without saying anything worthy of a ‘Parental Advisory’ sticker on the front of his CDs. People didn’t appreciate his music and now he isn’t making any, at least not since Lost & Found back in 2005. If he ever steps back in the studio, we’re guaranteed at least three potential radio hits, and we should cherish ’em.

5. A Twitter account.

Because all of the parody accounts tweeting random quotes that some people seem to think are from the real Will Smith have gotten a little bit out of control. Plus, who wouldn’t want daily, 140-character humor or inspiration from Will? TC Mark

    I concur with everything… except number 2. I personally like the “family-friendly” acting vibe. But maybe that’s just me.
