Roland Emmerich Shuts Down The Zone


Just a week after news broke that Roland Emmerich was planning a found-footage science fiction film dubbed The Zone, comes word, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, that the project is no more.

Though the article theorizes that similar rival projects may be the cause for the The Zone‘s cancellation (notably Apollo 18), no official reason is given.

Alleged to be an alien invasion story that would have starred an unknown cast, The Zone would have been atypically low-budget for Emmerich, planned at under $5 million.
