Smith Acts For the 'Greenbacks'

Will Smith may star in 'Greenbacks,' a thriller set up at 20th Century Fox.

According to Variety, Smith and Overbrook Entertainment partner James Lassiter would produce the drama, which is based off a script by "Double Jeopardy" scribes Doug Cook and David Weisberg.

The film is set in Morocco and would star Smith as an American abroad who uncovers a massive counterfeiting ring.

Smith is a busy, busy man. He's completed work on "Pursuit of Happyness" and is next project is expected to be "Tonight, He Comes." It was just last week, though, that Variety attached the "Ali" Oscar nominee to a big screen version of "It Takes a Thief." Smith's Overbrook shingle is also producing "Monster Hunter" for Sony.
