This is how the world ends... 2012 - with Roland Emmerich shooting it!
Hey folks, Harry here... I've taken a lot of shit for a very long time for being a fan of Roland Emmerich's. There was, of course, the infamous GODZILLA incident where the premiere was so amazing that it rendered my brain mush, and I praised the bejeesus out of it - only to see it in a regular setting 48 hours later and decreed myself temporarily insane. But otherwise - I've been a constant fan of his work. I like MOON 44, STARGATE, INDEPENDENCE DAY (which hasn't aged as well), PATRIOT and THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW (which I watched on Blu Ray last night and found it to be scarier today, than 4 years ago when it hit.
Next we have 10,000 B.C. coming out very soon. Starring the brooding boy from SKY HIGH! Who I said when I reviewed that film, would go on to great things. Warren Peace was a great character and role.
Well, the strike is over... his new film is perched upon release - and Roland Emmerich has started shopping his next project... 2012 "an apocalyptic spec script" that Emmerich and the fella he co-wrote 10,000 B.C. with created. He apparently is shopping this with a Summer 2009 date picked out and his overall marketing plan in place. And according to Variety's unnamed sources - it has more going for it than just a big idea that studios love. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
If you know anything on 2012 - drop us a line - I'm very much looking forward to finding out how we all die this time... so far its been Aliens, Climate Change and big lizard thing... What's happening in 2012? Do you know? What do you think it'll be? Is it the big YELLOWSTONE VOLCANIC THING? Can't be asteroids or comets - that's been done. Hmmmm... How does the world end this time?
