Los Angeles: Will Smith and son Jaden are teaming up again on the big-screen.

The two last starred together in the 2006 drama ‘The Pursuit of Happyness.’ They will work together in an as-yet-untitled science-fiction adventure for Columbia Pictures, a unit of Sony Corp.

M. Night Shyamalan is directing and co-writing the movie starring the 42-year-old father and his 12-year-old son. Shyamalan also directed ‘The Sixth Sense’ and ‘The Last Airbender.’

Sony said Monday that the movie centers on a boy struggling to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes on an abandoned Earth a thousand years in the future.

As they did on their son`s 2010 hit, ‘The Karate Kid,’ Will and Jada Pinkett Smith will be producers on the new movie.
