For Roland Emmerich, 2012 Is Now

We hear there may be explosions, high-speed chases, and lots of shouting.

Roland Emmerich‘s 10,000 B.C. won’t arrive in theaters until March 7, but the big-budget-lovin’ director already has studios lining up to pay for his next project.

Variety reports that Emmerich’s people at CAA are shopping 2012, described as “an apocalyptic spec script” written by the director with his 10,000 B.C. partner, Harald Kloser. From the article:

Studio toppers read the script Tuesday, and indications are that nearly all of them were interested enough to meet with Emmerich and reps 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, barring a prolonged Screen Actors Guild strike.

As Variety points out, this process is nothing new for Emmerich; he’s held spec auctions for several of his films, including Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow. And what with the hiccup in script development caused by the strike, Emmerich should find more studios than ever hungry for a ready-made tentpole. 2012, here we come!
