Woody Harrelson Joins 2012

Woody Harrelson tells MTV News that he has landed a starring role in Roland Emmerich’s apocalyptic “2012”.

The story deals with an apocalypse in the year 2012 which coincides with the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21st 2012.

Harrelson says his character is “a sort of modern version of the Greek Cassandra, a prophet nobody believes… I play a guy who’s been talking for a long time, the whole world thinks he’s crazy. But he’s been talking that there’s gonna be hell to pay for what’s been going on ecologically and everything.”

He joins John Cusack, Danny Glover, and Amanda Peet in the release which begins filming shortly in Vancouver.
