Actor Will Smith will soon be heading for Costa Rica to shoot his latest film “After Earth”.

The “I Am Legend” star and son Jaden, are scheduled to begin shooting on February 6th, though locations for the filming have not yet been released.

Shyamalan was also tweeting on Monday, saying, “Crew leaving for Costa Rica already. A year and half of writing and prep is coming to an end. #AfterEarth …”
