While Roland Emmerich's new disaster film won't hit theaters until next weekend, it seems that a TV version is already in play. According to Entertainment Weekly, director Roland Emmerich is working on a TV series based off his film 2012 is already being planned. Here's what Emmerich told the site at the 2012 premiere last night in Los Angeles.
"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) Harold 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."
2012 executive producer Howard Gordon is also an executive producer for TV series' such as Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice and it was said that Gordon is currently in talks with ABC for this potential series, although the network declined to comment.
