Roland Emmerich May Be Getting His Hands on Some Dark Matter
Director Roland Emmerich is in negotiations to helm a Dark Matter movie, based on the recently released sci-fi thriller novel from Blake Crouch.
Even though Roland Emmerich announced last month that he would no longer be pursuing a Stargate reboot (at least in the near future), he’s still got a pretty packed sci-fi slate, with Moonfall and Indepence Day 3 on the horizon (not to mention he’s also directing the historical drama Maya Lord). But apparently, that’s not enough sci-fi for Emmerich, as Deadline is reporting that he’s in negotiations with Sony and producer Matt Tolmach to direct an adaptation of Blake Crouch’s sci-fi thriller Dark Matter. There’s no word yet on who will be scripting the Dark Matter movie, though Emmerich might end up in that role as well, as he’s done plenty of writing.
