I am legend:
According to Akiva Goldsman, there were plans to produce a follow-up film, with scripts even being written around a prequel and sequel.

One prequel involved the outbreak occurring during the Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City, while another focused on the human population becoming low. The latter prequel featured a trip to Washington, D.C., and an infected elephant escaping from the zoo. However, the project was effectively shelved.

Q: I Am Legend is basically an interior novel (we are in the mind of Robert Neville for a good part of the novel), do you consider this a factor in the considerable differing of your novel and the films that emerge from it? Or is it just the nature of the Hollywood beast to try to “improve” or reinterpret?

A: Your last sentence explains it. It is just the nature of Hollywood to try to “improve” or reinterpret.

The watch had stopped.
“Rob…ert,” she said.
In a week the dog was dead.
I am legend.

I Am Legend Alternate Ending

During the lab attack, the alpha male makes a butterfly-shaped smear on the glass. Neville realizes it is identifying the female which he was experimenting by her butterfly tattoo and wants her back. Neville puts his gun down and returns the female. Neville and the alpha male stare at each other down as the former apologizes to the latter. The alpha male accepts it and the Darkseekers leave. Shocked, Neville looks over the pictures of his numerous test subjects and the implications of his research methods begin to dawn on him. Neville, Anna, and Ethan then drive to the survivors’ camp in Vermont with the antidote.
