Emmerich & Asimov

01.16.2009

Foundation, Isaac Asimov Roland Emmerich, who's taken to cinematically destroying Earth on an epic scale both in modern and prehistoric times - his most recent attempt, 2012, involves an apocalyptic demise predicted by the Mayans in the titular year - will next have a science fiction edge to his global destruction. Sony/Columbia recently won the rights to iconic sci fi writer Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" series and has set Emmerich to bring about the destruction. Well, not quite, since the story revolves around a psycho-historian who predicts the future using scientific principles who predicts a galactic demise then goes about trying to save the accumulated knowledge of mankind. Sony/Columbia apparently owe their surprise win of the rights to the series to the recent legal brouhaha between Warner Bros. and Fox since WB held the rights at one point. The aforementioned 2012 opens July 10th.

Extra Tidbit: The stories that comprise the "Foundation" series were first published together as a book by Gnome Press in 1951.
