W ill Smith has his sights set on getting Denzel Washington to star in “The American Can,” a film that tells the heroic story of John Keller, who saved several elderly residents during Hurricane Katrina. Will was originally going to produce and star in the film, but he wants to remain behind-the-scenes and have Denzel take the lead role. The film follows the plight of residents living in the American Can apartment complex when New Orleans was destroyed by flood waters. For two days, John Keller, a six-foot-seven former Marine, carried residents to safety on the rooftop after the building was flooded with rancid water. If things work out with Denzel, production should get going pretty quick and then we’re all in for some inspiring cinematic moments and buckets of tears. The movie will be written and directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side).
