The disaster flick "2012" is not opening until next Friday the 13th, but now, director/producer Roland Emmerich already revealed his plans to bring his apocalyptic vision into our TV screens.
This will be one of those "gimmicky" TV shows we've all grown to love or hate. Shows like "Lost," "Heroes," and "Flash Forward."
Emmerich exclusive told Entertainment Weekly:
“The plan is that it is 2013 and it’s about what happens after the disaster,” Emmerich told EW while walking the red carpet for the 2012 premiere Tuesday. “It is about the resettling of Earth. That is very, very fascinating. (2012 writer/producer) Harald Kloser and I came up with the idea and we have the luxury of having a producer on the film who is a big TV producer, Mark Gordon. We said to Mark, ‘Why don’t you do a TV show that picks up where the movie leaves off and call it 2013?’ I think it will focus on a group of people who survived but not on the boats … maybe they were on a piece of land that was spared or one that became an island in the process of the crust moving. There are so many possibilities of what they could do and I’d be excited to watch it.”
