Roland Emmerich finds 'Foundation' - Entertainment News, Film News, Media - Variety: "Columbia won an auction late Thursday for screen rights to 'Foundation,' Isaac Asimov's ground breaking science fiction trilogy. The film will be developed as a directing vehicle for Roland Emmerich.

Emmerich and his Centropolis partner Michael Wimer will produce the film. The deal was mid six-figures against low seven figures.

Originally published as a series of eight short stories in Astounding Magazine beginning in 1942, 'Foundation' is a complex saga about humans who are scattered on planets throughout the galaxy, living under the rule of the Galactic Empire."

Hat tip to Thomas Miller.
