Emmerich gets apocalyptic

Not content with razing our cities in Independence Day, flooding them in The Day After Tomorrow and sending hordes of mammoths trampling everywhere in 10,000 BC, Roland Emmerich is at it again.

According to Variety , the German blockbuster craftsman is busy shipping around an apocalyptic script called 2012 that he’s penned with 10,000 collaborator Harold Kloser.

There’s no word on a plot yet, but you can guarantee wholesale destructo-spectacle. The studios have read the script and it has apparently generated plenty of interest. Once someone stumps up the cash, Emmerich plans to start shooting ready for a summer 2009 release.
