It seems that Sony's Columbia Pictures has won a bidding war for a big Issac Asimov property. According to Variety, Columbia has won the rights to adapt Asimov's sci-fi trilogy Foundation to the silver screen.
Roland Emmerich is set to direct the film. The Asimov story, originally created as eight short stories, deals with humans that are all across the galaxy and live under the reign of the Galactic Empire. A historian who can see the future, sees the collapse of this empire and starts working on saving the knowledge of humanity.
The property sparked a serious bidding war, with Warner Bros. bidding for Alex Proyas to direct and Fox bidding for producer Vince Gerardis, who first worked on developing the film.
No production schedule has been announced.
