Will Smith: 'I'm Giving Up Blockbusters'

Big Willy hints that he wants to focus on smaller movies in future...

Will Smith has signalled that he is heading for a major career change - giving up blockbuster movies.

Speaking to Digital Spy about his current film After Earth, he said he wants to take more chances.

"It's been an absolute necessity that the movie be a blockbuster, but I think I'm going to start moving out of that and finding more danger in my artistic choices.

"There's something about making movies that just really gets me excited. I love people being wrapped in a story and being able to deliver that emotional punch line at the end of the story."
