Roland Emmerich’s next blockbuster is Moonfall

As Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day: Resurgence explodes into cinemas, Universal has payed a hefty figure for his next epic entitled Moonfall, a script Emmerich wrote with his 2012 collaborators Harold Closer and Spencer Cohen.

The space orientated blockbuster has been described as Emmerich’s 2012 mashed together with Close Encounters Of The Third Kind and follows an unlikely band of misfits who must unite to save humanity when the moon falls out of orbit and hurtles towards earth.

Independence Day: Resurgence is in cinemas now.
