    The Day After Tomorrow director Roland Emmerich has settled on his next project, 10,000 B.C. Basically doing exactly what it says on the tin, the film will centre on a 21-year-old man member of a pre-historic tribe migrating through their homeland and slaughtering mammoth.

    The script was co-written by Emmerich and his composer on Day After Tomorrow, Harald Kloser. Emmerich is looking for an unknown to play the lead (got a beard? Excess body hair? You could be famous!) and will begin casting later this month, with filming due to start in Africa in February.

    Given that Day After was slightly better than Godzilla and ID4, which were complete f****** b*******, this might be, maybe, reasonably watchable, perhaps.

    Man, THAT was a funny movie. Watch out for the giant, man-eating Iguana!!!
    Wonder what the budget for this seemingly crashing meteor will be like.

    I really don't think a film like this would do well. Not in today's world. There wouldn't be any vocabulary anyone could understand, or any real purpose.

    The great thing about ID4 was that it really showed what happens when leadership comes together and works to save the world from a great threat. I liked The Day After Tomorrow, because it showed the tenacity of American spirit, and how we were able to let the third world countries help us when we needed it.

    Don't forget Stargate and Universal Soldier, both were triumphs.

    Seriously though I think The Patriot is by far Roland Emmerichs best movie.
    This 10 000bc movie might be fun, but they better not be speaking english.

    Strait and Belle Go Back to 10,000 B.C.

    Source: Variety
    February 27, 2006



    Director Roland Emmerich has set Steven Strait (Sky High) and Camilla Belle (When a Stranger Calls) to star in 10,000 B.C., the period epic drama that will begin shooting April 24 for a summer 2007 tentpole for Warner Bros., reports Variety.

    Emmerich's Centropolis partner Michael Wimer is producing with Mark Gordon. Legendary Pictures is co-financing, and its chairman-CEO, Thomas Tull, is executive producing along with Harald Kloser and Tom Karnowski. Warner Bros. will distribute worldwide.

    Strait will play a youngster far down in the pecking order of a primitive tribe that survives by hunting migrating mammoth. He pines for a princess well above his station. When the tribe's hunters are enslaved and the princess kidnapped, the boy realizes his tribe is headed for extinction unless he takes action.

    Emmerich wrote the first draft with Kloser, his musical composer on The Day After Tomorrow. Their ambition was to illustrate three stages of primitive man. The most recent draft was done by Robert Rodat, who worked with both Emmerich and Gordon on The Patriot, and with Gordon on Saving Private Ryan. The dialogue will be English language.

    The film will shoot in South Africa and Namibia.

    I would never make a prehistoric man movie. :confused:
    Either they go for realism and then you have to sit through 2 hours of grunting and chimp-talk, or they speak in English which is supremely ******ed.
    Sounds quite boring also.

    Independance Day is worth it just for Jeff Goldblum's triumphant, cigar-smoking swagger at the end. He walks like a supermodel, hilarious.

    Dinosaus were long gone by the time humans entered the scene, and when I say long gone I mean like 60+ million years before. So don't expect any Dinosaurs unless the movie is sci-fi.

    The last ice age receded around 10,000 years ago, so it could very well take place during the recession.

    Also, 10,000 B.C isn't too far back to think that these people would only be grunting, as language is believed to be around for much longer. So as for them speaking english, if you can believe any movie that has foriegn characters speaking english, ie Red October, then I can't see why cavemen speaking english would be a big stretch. this is a movie afterall, not a history text. I imagine the best technique would be some proto-language with captions, or perhaps just go the Passion of the Christ route, like The Quest for Fire.

    But leadership never comes together for any reason and the American Spirit isn't as tenacious as we'd like to believe. His movies are preachy bull **** and it's flat out dangerous to even consider them based in some kind of realism.

    We AREN'T willing to let the third world help us and they shouldn't have to. Ever. We're just stupid enough however to fall for all the things he predicts. It really sickens me to watch a Roland Emmerich movie, because the first act, when everyone is a selfish *****e, is dead on realistic. Then it gets stupid.

    Wait a minute. I read in National Geographic that pre-historic man really didn't hunt mammoths. Something about a huge gap between when they existed.
