WILL SMITH TO DIRECT & STAR IN THE STORY OF CAIN AND ABEL Will Smith is eyeing a film about battling brothers Cain and Abel as his directorial debut. The project is set at Sony in development and is being produced by Overbrook Entertainment. This has been in the arsenal for some time, and won’t be Smith’s next film, but it is an intriguing development for the actor and producer. The project has gone under the working title of The Redemption Of Cain, but I’ve confirmed that it’s now being developed as a directing vehicle for Smith, who’ll likely star in the film as well. This comes as Darren Aronofsky starts production with Russell Crowe on Noah, and both Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott have Moses projects in the works.             MICK JAGGER'S MAGIC # Rock stars often make inflated claims about how many women they've been with, but this one comes from an independent source: Christopher Andersen . . . who wrote that new MICK JAGGER biography "Mick: The Wild and Mad Genius of Jagger" . . . says Mick has bedded about 4,000 people. And I say "people" because not all of them were women. We know of at least ONE dude on Mick's "hit it" list. I'm talking about that now-legendary story in which DAVID BOWIE'S wife came home one time back in the day and found Mick and her husband in bed. Anyway, Andersen says, quote, "[Mick's ex-wife] JERRY HALL proclaimed after putting up with his infidelity for 23 years that he was a sex addict, and she asked him to get help. "Keith [Richards] asked him to get help, and they were thrilled when he sought help from a sex therapist. Until he seduced the sex therapist."                BEANIE SIGEL VS THE IRS Former Roc-A-Fella Records rapper Beanie Sigel is reportedly headed to jail for two years for his publicized Philadelphia tax evasion case. Reports claim Sigel is required to begin his jail sentence by mid-September. Beans was sentence to 24-months in prison for failing to file federal income tax returns, and must report to prison on Sept. 12. The IRS found that Beanie did not file tax returns from 1999 through 2002, except for a $10,000 tax payment in 2001 while he earned more than $2.2 million in taxable income for those years. So he owes $728,536 for those six years. But on a happier note, Beanie is back doing music. Chris Schwartz, CEO of hip-hop label Ruffhouse Records, has announced that Beanie will drop his first album for the label This Time will be released August 28.
