Interesting piece of news I just read... courtesy of /Film and Production Weekly:
One of the most interesting notes is this bumper, super-expansive edition (of Production Weekly) is their listing for The Robinsons - an adaptation of the novel, The Swiss Family Robinson, designed to star Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and all three of the Smith kids - Trey, Jaden and Willow.
The PW entry tells us that the film will be about “a family shipwrecked in the East Indies en route to Port Jackson, Australia”.
I'm familiar with the novel - The Swiss Family Robinson - but in title alone. I've never read it, so I can't say much about the Pinkett-Smith family's adaptation of it. But, according to the novel's Wiki page, the story is similar to what's written in the above synopsis - a Swiss family who are shipwrecked in the East Indies en route to Port Jackson, Australia. The novel was published in 1812, so, I'd guess that the Pinkett-Smith family rendition will undoubtedly be modernized.
