The Last Man on Earth

Based on the chilling Richard Matheson science fiction Classic "I am Legend" and later remade as The Omega Man starring Charlton Heston. This classic from 1964 features Vincent Price as scientist Robert Morgan in a post apocalyptic nightmare world. The world has been consumed by a ravenous plague that has transformed humanity into a race of bloodthirsty vampires. Only Morgan proves immune, and becomes the solitary vampire slayer. More here. The Will Smith version of the story, I Am Legend is scheduled to be released December 14, 2007.

It's a great film, one I picked up on after I'd first watched Omega Man (which I love by the way), and then read Matheson's I Am Legend. So far I think it's the most faithful to the original novel, and it does have Vincent Price, which is always a bonus.

Wondering how well Will Smith, and the new 'Legend' will hold up against the past attempts?

Should be interesting.
