Even though, it might be a while till shoots resume owing to the pandemic but deals are being sealed in the interim.
Actor Halle Berry will star star in Moonfall, the latest sci-fi disaster picture from Roland Emmerich.
Berry joins Josh Gad, who was first to sign up, in the thriller that Emmerich, who made destroying Earthly landmarks his signature with movies such as Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow, co-wrote and is directing.
Production is eying a fall start with Lionsgate, which released Emmerich’s last movie, World War II pic Midway, distributing in North America.
Penned by Emmerich and 2012 co-writer Harald Kloser and Spenser Cohen, Moonfall sees its plot go into action when the moon is knocked from its orbit by a mysterious force and is on a collision course with Earth. Life as we know it hangs in the balance and with just weeks to go before impact, a ragtag team is sent on a seemingly impossible mission to land on the lunar surface and save humanity.
Gad is playing an eccentric genius that deduces that the moon has fallen out of its orbit.
Berry will play an astronaut-turned-NASA administrator whose previous mission holds a clue to the catastrophe.
