2003's big disaster flick

05.06.2002

Next summer will see such high-profile "tentpole" pics as TERMINATOR 3, THE MATRIX RELOADED, X-MEN 2, THE HULK, CHARLIE'S ANGELS 2 and more.  But now a new player has entered the game - THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW - a big-budget disaster film from Roland Emmerich (INDEPENDENCE DAY, THE PATRIOT).  Fox snatched up the property and as part of their deal with producers, placed it on the fast-tract for next summer with pre-production to start immediately.  The film will follow the catastrophic events (tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc) that occur as the result of global warming.  TOMORROW is reportedly budgeted at $125 million but Fox execs claim it will be shy of $100 mil.  Emmerich will direct from a script he co-wrote with Jeffrey Nachmanhoff.  2003 is shaping up to be a banner year for Fox with X-MEN 2, SOLARIS, THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, TRIPOLI and MASTER AND COMMANDER.
