Coming out of TIFF this year, one film that got a shockingly good amount of buzz was director Roland Emmerichâ€™s Anonymous. Now, good buzz isnâ€™t something usually said within the same sentence as Emmerichâ€™s name, but it appears as though that may be changing.
Now, according to Deadline, the director has gotten a brand new writer for one of his upcoming projects, with the hopes of continuing this good streak.
Sony has tapped Dante Harper to write the directorâ€™s upcoming take on Isaac Asimovâ€™s Foundation. Harper has been behind projects like David Fincherâ€™s long talked about film Black Hole and Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters, so this man is not only proven, but quite a hot commodity in Hollywood.
Personally, while Iâ€™m not hugely familiar with the book or the scripts that Harper has penned (Black Hole is a script everyone and their mother has been trying to read), I do think that itâ€™s an intriguing turn for Emmerich. Anonymous appears to be the directorâ€™s best yet, so hereâ€™s to hoping this sucker can live up to its potential.
