Having one little Smith in a film already amps up the cuteness, but now Variety reports that we're going to get a double serving. Willow andJaden Smith, the little offspring of Will and Jada, are going to star in an adaptation of Kazu Kibuishi's Amulet. Of course, Will Smith is producing with Overbrook Entertainment. Right now, there's no word on a screenwriter or director.

Amulet is a graphic novel that focuses on a brother and sister who move into their late great-grandfather's house with their mother after their father dies. It's not a particularly safe move, because they have to "use his amulet to rescue their widowed mother from a beast who lures her into an underground world."

Should this adaptation be successful, I'd get ready to see a lot more of the Smith offspring. This could, potentially, be a series of kiddie adventures, since it's a Scholastic series with 5 books planned (#2 will be released this year). Personally, I'm glad to see a new children's adaptation that doesn't seem to be jumping on the boy wizard bandwagon. And really, how can you resist those tykes?
