SDCC: Roland Emmerich

We have an interesting video from our friends over at /Film, who not only got to sit down with director Roland Emmerich, but also taped their interview for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

They quiz the blockbuster director about his upcoming film 2012, chat about the characters in his films (past and present), his use of miniatures vs. CGI, and how he came up with the staging for some of his disasters.

Near the end of the interview Emmerich also talks about his Foundation adaptation (we reported) and how much he loved the books:

“As a kid already loved it. Was one of the… I mean, I think everybody who’s a science fiction fan has read that thing, right?”

Absolutely right. He also acknowledges that it will be very difficult to make that into a film.

Very interesting interview. Check it out here.
