Will Smith helped his son Jaden to prepare for a new movie project by chopping off his signature dreadlocked hairstyle.

The Suicide Squad star shared photos of the dramatic big chop on his Facebook page on Tuesday including one snap which shows Will excitedly holding up the lopped off bundle of blonde dreads he'd just cut.

"Getting Jaden Smith ready for the first day of filming #LifeInAYear," a grinning Will captioned the picture. "Maybe I should’ve used scissors?!"

Jaden can be seen in the of the photos sporting a short blonde afro.


The 18-year-old actor, who has appeared in several films alongside his famous father including The Pursuit of Happyness and box office flop After Earth, has cut his hair in preparation for a role in a new romantic drama, Life in a Year.

In the movie, Jaden will play teenager Daryn, who discovers his girlfriend Isabelle, played by Cara Delevingne, only has a year to live, so he sets out to give her a year's worth of their life experiences in the time she has left.

Empire star and Oscar nominee Terrence Howard will also star in the movie as Jaden's no-nonsense on-screen father, with Mitja Okorn directing.

The film is expected to hit theatres in 2018.
