Isaac perdonaci 10.03.10

Uno aspetta da una vita il film sul Ciclo della Fondazione e voi lo fate girare a quel tamarro di Roland Emmerich?

That's right - he's moving onto galactic civilisation-pummeling cataclysms. Or is he? "Well, it depends on the script," Emmerich told us when we spoke to him. "We've got a script from Robert Rodat now and it's 240 pages long! I said, 'You know what guys? Edit it down to at least under 200 pages.'"

Of course, Rodat's first draft of The Patriot was similarly epic and the task of condensing Asimov's seven volume series into something filmable was always likely to be Sisyphean. Emmerich isn't deterred from his quest to bring the seminal sci-fi to the screen: "I'm really into it. I worked with Bob on the story for weeks, sitting in a room trying to figure out how to make all the loose stories [work] and put them in a box called 'Foundation'. Bob’s perfect for this thing - he also knows as a writer he has to find the hero and a bad guy in the piece. We had to come up with characters that go through [the series], which is very hard."
