Were you disappointed with the most recent adaptation of Richard Matheson’s seminal vampire apocalypse tale I am Legend? Well, it turns out that the director of the film agrees with you!
In an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, director Francis Lawrence admitted that he would have preferred making a more faithful adaptation of Matheson’s novel. Lawrence told Screen Rant that “…we could have just done basically the story of the novella straight up and made the same amount of money in terms of ticket sales because people went I think for the last man on earth. They would have accepted the nihilistic ending, they would have accepted vampires instead of people with infections.”
