Unused HANCOCK Scene From The Mind Of Breaking Bad's Vince Gilligan
Film Sketchr has come across some storyboards that were illustrated by Peter Rubin of an unused Hancock scene that was created by Breaking Bad creator, Vince Gilligan. Check it out.
Before Vince Gilligan went off to tell a story about a high school chemistry teacher that gets cancer and turns to cooking and selling meth to pay for his treatment, he was working on the screenplay to Will Smith's Hancock. At that time, the script was known as Tonight He Comes and was about: "a superhero alcoholic who could not make love because if he climaxed, he would kill a woman with the power of his climax." That version was described as "dark" and "twisted." Clearly, we didn't get to see that version in Peter Berg's Hancock, but we can take a glimpse of it with storyboards that were created by storyboard artist Peter Rubin.
"In the original version, Bateman's character tries to set Hancock up with a new, do-gooder, Superman-like image, and debuts it at a big fundraising event with giant corporate sponsors and name music acts. This is the scene in which he discovers he's losing his powers because he had sex with Charlize Theron." - Peter Rubin

Will Smith (he Pursuit of Happyness) stars in this action-packed comedy as Hancock, a sarcastic, hard-living and misunderstood superhero who has fallen out of favor with the public. When Hancock grudgingly agrees to an extreme makeover from idealistic publicist Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman, Juno), his life and reputation rise from the ashes and all seems right again--until he meets a woman (2003 Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron, Best Actress, Monster) with similar powers to his and the key to his secret past.
