Robert Neville (Will Smith) is a brilliant scientist, but even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable, and man-made. Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City and maybe the world. For three years, Neville has faithfully sent out daily radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. But he is not alone. Mutant victims of the plague--the Infected--lurk in the shadows...watching Neville's every move...waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Perhaps mankind's last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But he knows he is outnumbered...and quickly running out of time.Warner Bros.

As a Loyola Marymount University film student, he worked on his own productions throughout college, and, upon graduating, began to make music videos for a friend who owned a small record label.Lawrence has since helmed videos for some of the biggest superstars in music, winning nearly every possible award in the process. The young director was recognized in 2003 for his innovative work on Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River" by the Music Video Production Association (MVPA), receiving the awards for Best Pop and Best Male Video. He has been recognized several times by the MTV Video Music Awards and received the Director of the Year Award in 2002 from the MVPA.

One of his most high-profile project was Will Smith's "Black Suits Coming" video for the movie "Men in Black II." The experience not only presented him with a welcome challenge, but also provided solid training ground for his smooth segue from videos to feature films.In addition, Lawrence has made his mark in the world of commercials, having created musically charged and visually stunning campaigns for major corporate names, including Gap and Coca-Cola.Produced by Jamaal FinkleyPersonality: Jamaal FinkleyA BlackTree Media Production
