I’m glad I didn’t miss the little snippet buried inside this USA Today story about disaster-filmmaker Roland Emmerich’s new summer movie 2012:
Whether his retirement from chaos is permanent, he already has his next project lined up: Anonymous, a mystery about whether William Shakespeare really authored all his plays. It's clearly a departure, unless the Bard's critics are destroyed by meteors or a gigantic flood.
That’s right, people. The man who brought you “Independence Day”, “The Day After Tomorrow”, and “10,000 BC” is apparently going to do a movie about the Shakespeare Authorship question.
Although I like the idea about the Bard’s critics being destroyed by flood.
