It seems that One Thousand A.E. is no longer the official title of this movie. As we know M. Night Shyamalan has officially joined Twitter and one of his first information shared is that After Earth will be the official title of One Thousand A.E. (probably not a good idea to have a title that reminds anyone of "Titan A.E.")and as we know this movie have already a release date set for 7 June 2013. The cast may include Zoe Kravitz and Sophie Okonedo. That's all for now about this project.
