Who Gets Roland Emmerich’s 2012 ?


Variety reports that Roland Emmerich is ready to wreak havoc on the planet, and once again, multiple studios are vying to go along for the ride.

CAA is shopping 2012, an apocalyptic spec script written by Emmerich and Harald Kloser, who collaborated on 10,000 B.C., opening in theaters on March 7.

According to the trade, studio executives read the script Tuesday, and indications are that nearly all of them were interested enough to meet with Emmerich and representatives Wednesday to hear his budget projection and creative aspirations.

After that, studios will bid on what is essentially a greenlit film, one that Emmerich intends to direct next and have ready for a summer 2009 release.
