Three For Emmerich’s 2012

And the President of the U.S. is…

As Roland Emmerich is wont to do, he’s loading up his end ‘o the world flick 2012 with the post recognizable Hollywood faces possible (at least those he can get his paws on). Danny Glover, Thandie Newton and Oliver Platt are now in discussions to join Columbia Pictures’ epic project.

The film centers on a global cataclysm and tells the heroic struggle of the survivors.

Glover is in talks to play the president, with Newton in discussions to play his daughter. Platt is in negotiations to play the president’s chief of staff.

John Cusack and Chiwetel Ejiofor already are on board.

The studio is planning a July 10, 2009, release, with filming set to begin in July – unless there is an actors strike.
