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.

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 that the movie centres 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.
