Seven Pounds

Smith, Muccino reteam for mysterious drama


Columbia Pictures

Release date: Dec. 19

"Seven Pounds" reunites Will Smith with the filmmaking team behind the pic that earned him his last Oscar nomination, "The Pursuit of Happyness." Returning to the helm is Italian director Gabriele Muccino. Oscar winner Steve Tisch ("Forrest Gump"), Todd Black and Jason Blumenthal are part of the producer lineup again. And, among others, Oscar-winning editor Hughes Winborne ("Crash") is also back.

Smith plays an IRS agent "with a fateful secret who embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by forever changing the lives of seven strangers," according to Sony. Pic hasn't been screened yet, and its plot is deliberately being kept under wraps (because it could be seen as a bit of a downer). Suffice it to say, though, the story promises those important kudo-baiting hallmarks: life-changing love and, of course, redemption.

Smith first stumbled upon Muccino's work when he was in Italy promoting a pic. After their successful collaboration on "Pursuit," the duo didn't find another good fit to reteam until "Seven Pounds."

New to the collaboration this time is the cast, including Rosario Dawson, Michael Ealy, Barry Pepper and Woody Harrelson, who play characters along the road of Smith's redemptive journey. If the pic delivers strong performances, nominations for multiple thesps could be forthcoming, including Smith.

It could be a steeper climb for Muccino and others behind the camera. "Pursuit" yielded just one nom -- for Smith -- despite strong kudos buzz on the pic.

Will Smith on Good Morning Texas

WFAA-TV's Victory Plaza studio will turn into a celebrity fishbowl on Tuesday morning when Will Smith stops by to visit Good Morning Texas and promote his new film, Seven Pounds. While Channel 8 viewers are by now familiar with on-camera spectacle of post-game crowds milling about the studio during the ABC (and, of course, Belo-owned) affiliate's 10 pm newscast. But this Tuesday morning will offer the rare opportunity for some completely justified screaming-in-public when the man known as Mr. Fourth of July/the $25 million dollar Man and/or the Biggest Movie Star in the World gets his up-close-and-personal groove on in Victory Park. The show begins at 9 am, so figure out what the ideal arrival time is and be part of the throng.

ET First Look: Will Smith & Rosario Dawson in 'Seven Pounds'

Will Smith plays a conflicted man who decides to help seven strangers in the dramatic love story 'Seven Pounds' -- but he also holds a mysterious secret. ET has a first look at the film!

Will plays Ben Thomas, an IRS agent who embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by forever changing the lives of seven strangers, including Woody Harrelson as a blind man and Rosario Dawson as a woman with a failing heart.

"She's one of the seven strangers that [Will] meets and tries to affect positively," Rosario tells ET. "Through that interaction, she has an opportunity to change him positively and it grows very beautifully.

"It's very mysterious," she continues. "It's a really difficult film to describe, but there are certain moments between the two of them that are really authentic, and very romantic and beautiful, and I think that people will feel connected to it."

In theaters December 19, 'Seven Pounds' also stars Barry Pepper and Michael Ealy and reunites Will with his 'The Pursuit of Happyness' director Gabriele Muccino.

Watch ET for more with Will and the cast of 'Seven Pounds'!
