It didn’t take long… After yesterday’s news, that the studios were vieing for Emmerich’s latest apocalyptic script, it appears Sony has won the rights to it. The film is due to go into production late summer this year. According to Variety, the decision signals that the various studios are open to flashy packages after the resolution of the writer’s strike last week.
As of yet there are no details relating to the script, though we know it’s another collaborative effort from Roland and Harald Kloser.
