Roland Emmerich’s ‘The Zone’ is not in play
On October 31, it was reported that “Independence Day” director Roland Emmerich was directing a cheapie sci-fi film for $5 million.
Brilliant idea. It has been said that the most creative things occur when limits are set. The film, a “Paranormal Activity” inspired project with unknown actors, would have been entitled “The Zone.”
The project was in rehearsals.
Per the Hollywood Reporter, Emmerich pulled the plug due to concern that other similar projects were out there. Per se, Oren Peli’s “Area 51” and Timur Bekmambetov-produced “Apollo 18” which are on the horizon.
Emmerich’s last movie “2012” made $770 million at the global box office.
