Roland Emmerich will shoot aliens on a shoestring budget

HollywoodNews.com: It has been said that the greatest amount of creativity comes when one has limited resources.

Tentpole sci-fi director Roland Emmerich plans to return to the alien invasion turf he made his mark in with “Independence Day” with a film that will only cost him $5 million. That’s his lowest budget since “Stargate.”

The project is titled “The Zone” and it’s awash in secrecy. “Zone” will tout a style similar to “Paranormal Activity” and “Cloverfield.” Much of the film will be improvised with a cast of unknowns. French scribe-helmer Guillaume Tunzini wrote the script.

The only hints about the film per the Hollywood Reporter is its casting call sheet: “Two leads were just cast, one playing a haggard journalist in his 40s or 50s, the other a black man in his early to mid 20’s, the cameraman.”

Production is to begin in November and Sony will distribute the film.
