After the success of Bad Boys: Ride or Die, Will Smith getting firmly back in his action star bag with his upcoming sci-fi thriller film, Resistor.

Deadline reports that Sony Pictures, the studio behind Bad Boys: Ride or Die, will team up with Smith once again for the new sci-fi film. Smith will also produce the film with Westbrook’s Jon Mone.

Resistor is based on Daniel Suarez’s novel Influx, and follows a physicist named Jon Grady who has discovered a device that can reflect gravity. The new development could change the course of science and the world. But Grady and his team get cornered by the Bureau of Technology Control, a secret organization to “suppress the truth of sudden technological progress and prevent the social upheaval it would trigger,” according to Deadline.

Grady refuses to join the organization. As a result, he’s thrown into technologically advanced prison keeping other scientists who refused to join. Now, Grady and his fellow prisoners must break out and spread their new information to the world.

Zak Olkewicz adapted the book for the first draft of the screenplay, and Eric Warren Singer writing the most recent version of the script.

Other producers include Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch and Tony Shaw alongside Dave Wilson. Westbrook’s SVP of development Heather Washington will executive produce.
