Will SmithBiblical epics are so hot right now in Hollywood, and according to Deadline, Will Smith wants in ... as a director!

The film, tentatively titled The Redemption of Cain — about Adam and Eve's sons, Cain and Abel — would mark Smith's directorial debut and would also star him.

Smith, who has a trio of surefire blockbuster sequels coming up (not to mention the recent Men in Black 3, which is already a hit for Sony) as well as the M. Night Shyamalan-directed After Earth next summer, would join a suddenly burgeoning sub-genre that includes Darren Aronofsky's frequently-in-the-news biblical epic Noah and upcoming Moses projects from Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott.
