Emmerich Plans Sci-Fi Tale “Emergence”

Centropolis Entertainment has acquired Nic Kelman’s large scale contemporary sci-fi pitch “Emergence” which filmmaker Roland Emmerich (“2012,” “Independence Day”) plans to direct.

The story is said to be “an alien invasion story containing hot-button science elements”. It’s expected Emmerich will pre-package the film in the way he has many of his previous efforts.

Emmerich has other projects in the works that are likely to go first, including “Singularity” and the potential “Independence Day” sequel.
