Jaden Smith Cast as a Teenage Assassin

Jaden Smith's next film role casts him as a brainwashed teenage assassin devoid of emotion...

From Variety
Sony Pictures and Overbrook Entertainment are in early talks to acquire pic rights to Allen Zadoff's novel "Boy Nobody," with plans to develop it as a starring vehicle for Jaden Smith.
"Boy Nobody" is the first in a planned young adult trilogy about a brainwashed teenage assassin who starts to regain his emotions.
The book's main character is reminiscent of a teenage Jason Bourne, with Zadoff describing the young protag as a "young soldier trained not to feel; who could function in every situation without fear, sympathy or anger; who could assassinate strangers and then walk away emotionally unscathed."
