An Authorship Movie? Disaster!

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.

Oh, no. Pray for meteors.

Starring Derek Jacobi and Mark Rylance?

I cannot comment on ANONYMOUS until I see it or read the script. You never know. I can say that my ANOTHER MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM does NOT dispute that Shakespeare wrote the plays. The secrets, I hope, will surprise and entertain.
