“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 theaters in 2018.
