Taipei: Hollywood star Will Smith said that he will probably shoot a comedy with his son Jaden when they team up for the third time in film-making.

Smith, who arrived in Taiwan on a promotional tour, said it was "fantastic" to work with the 15-year-old in their second movie together, the sci-fi flick 'After Earth', set to hit cinemas in June.

"Entertainment is our family business, so I am sure that if something comes up we'll do it again," Smith said at a red carpet fan meeting near the landmark Taipei 101 building, which was lit up with the movie's name.

"He (Jaden) is looking forward to a comedy, he's been having to do lots of drama for his career. Drama has kind of been his signature and he's been asking to find a comedy," Smith said.

The father and son duo first collaborated in the drama 'The Pursuit of Happyness', in which Smith played the role of father to his then eight-year-old son.

'After Earth' tells the story of how Smith and Jaden fight to survive after they crash land on Earth, some 1,000 years after humans are forced to leave an uninhabitable Earth to live on another planet.

Jaden, who was also on site to greet hundreds of cheering Taiwanese fans, advised people to cut down on plastics, use solar panels and take shorter showers to help protect the earth.
