Is Will Smith’s vampire-themed Cain and Abel movie a go?

Last month, it was reported that Will Smith was thinking of directing The Redemption of Cain, a vampire-themed version of the story of Cain and Abel that Smith had been developing for a couple years as a starring vehicle for himself. Now, The Wrap reports that Sony Pictures is “moving forward” with the project and hopes to start filming it in July of next year, in places like London, Jordan and Morocco. If the film were finished by, say, 2014, it would mark at least the second time that year that Cain and Abel had appeared on the big screen; the biblical siblings are also set to appear in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, which recently finished location shooting in Iceland.
