Roland Emmerich planned science fiction film The Zone has reportedly been scrapped.

Alleged to be an alien invasion story that would have starred an unknown cast, The Zone would have been atypically low-budget for Emmerich, planned at under $5 million.

Though the Hollywood Reporter suggests that similar rival projects may be the cause for the The Zone’s cancellation (notably Apollo 18), no official reason is given.
