Emmerich’s Next To Be Sci-Fi Epic “Moonfall”

Just as his “Independence Day: Resurgence” hits cinemas, filmmaker Roland Emmerich is setting up another sci-fi event feature with the spec script “Moonfall” being picked up by Universal Pictures.

Emmerich, Harald Kloser (“The Day After Tomorrow”) and Spencer Cohen (“Extinction”) penned the script about a band of misfits who must unite to save humanity when the moon falls out of orbit and hurtles towards earth. The film is described as “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind” meets “2012”.

The picture will be fast-tracked to serve as Emmerich’s next directing effort and he will also produce the film with Kloser.
