FLOWER MOUND, Tx. - The HML-6M HID spotlight with magnetic base, running on both 12 volts DC and 24 volts DC, will play a role on a 50 caliber gun on a HUMVEE turret in a new movie, entitled "I am Legend" in late 2007.

The movie stars Will Smith, the last man standing after a global biological devastation. Those infected with the biological agent take on vampire-like qualities and pester him on a nightly basis. Eventually he takes to the streets slaughtering vampires and humans at will, becoming a legend in the process. The HML-6M HID spotlight with magnetic base will be used on a military HUMVEE during a scene where the military is managing an exodus of New York City residents.

About "I Am Legend"

I Am Legend is a 2007 science fiction film directed by Francis Lawrence and starring Will Smith. I Am Legend is based on Richard Matheson's novel of the same name, but reportedly the film will be closer to The Omega Man, the second film adaptation of the novel. I Am Legend is set to be released on November 21, 2007.

In January 2006, Warner Bros. pursued a deal to film in the Kingsbridge Armory in New York for seven months at the cost of $350,000. Shooting began on September 23, 2006 and is targeted to wrap up on March 31, 2007.

Filming for I Am Legend took place in New York City. Between October 16 and 17, 2006, camera crews were on location in the Hugo Boss store in Manhattan on Fifth Avenue and 55th Street, filming a scene where Will Smith brandished an M-16. Scenes of a "major action sequence" were also filmed in Washington Square Park during most of October. Further scenes will be filmed at locations like the Flatiron Building, Columbus Circle, and St. Patrick's Cathedral. The production of I Am Legend has involved 300 crew members and over 100 actors.
