Universal has purchased the script for the fantastic movie "The Fall of the Moon", co-authored by Roland Emmerich, for a seven-figure sum. This is reported by the publication Deadline. Most likely, a movie based on it will become the next project of the German director.
In the story, the Moon leaves orbit and moves towards the Earth, threatening to destroy all living things on it. The only hope of civilization is a group of losers who are entrusted with the mission of saving the planet. Emmerich himself, as well as co-writer Harald Kloser, with whom he has worked on several previous projects, will also be producing Moon Fall.
The terms of work on the project and a possible rental schedule at the time of this writing were not specified, only it was reported that the studio intends to force the production of the movie.
Note that "Independence Day 2", which started in the American and international distribution, did not live up to the expectations of Twentieth Century Fox studio. It was crushed by critics and received mostly unflattering reviews from viewers.
By the end of the premiere weekend, his home gross may only be $ 50 million. that is, about the same as the first part earned twenty years earlier.
