What Will Smith really wants to do is direct. At least according to a new report from Deadline.com, which claims he wants to direct the story of Cain and Abel.

Rumor has it that the film (tentatively titled "The Redemption of Cain") is at development in Sony. Films drawn up from the most popular book on earth aren't anything new: Darren Aronofsky started production on "Noah" and, as Deadline.com notes, both Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott have Moses tales in the works.

Get this, though: A mere two years ago, Will had, according to Deadline.com, decided to produce and star in "The Legend of Cain." That movie had a vampire twist.

Between slapping kiss-happy journalists and remixing his old rap joints, he has been keeping pretty busy.

The moral of the story? Will Smith might not ever be in a Cain and Abel movie.
