Will Smith and son

Will Smith will star opposite his seven-year-old son in his new movie.

Son Jaden, whose mom is 'Collateral' actress Jada Pinkett Smith, has landed a role as his dad's on-screen son in upcoming film 'Pursuit of Happyness'.

In the movie, based on a true story, Will plays Christopher Gardner, a failed salesman who gains custody of his son at the same time he lands a life-changing job at a Wall Street brokerage company.

The movie - which follows Gardner's attempts to juggle fatherhood with his career - also stars British actress Thandie Newton as Gardner's estranged wife.

Will has an older son, Trey, with ex-wife Sheree, and a four-year-old daughter, Willow, with Jada.
