Roland Emmerich to Bring Isaac Asimov's Foundation to the Screen

Roland Emmerich, the German-born maker of large-scale movies in which the world often takes a beating, is tackling the classic science fiction Foundation novels by the late Isaac Asimov.

SFX magazine reports that Emmerich will bring Avatar-style technology to the movies (he envisions a trilogy of Foundation films). The high-tech 3D approach is the wave of the future for big films, he says.

Emmerich, of course, is the man who brought the world Independence Day, Stargate, 2012 and more.
