Roland Emmerich's "2012" hasn't even opened, but already the director is eager to spoil a key plot point: Apparently enough people survive the Earth's pending devastation to populate a potential TV series.
According to Entertainment Weekly
, Emmerich and "2012" executive producer Mark Gordon ("Grey's Anatomy") are developing a small screen extension of the movie, focusing on the resettling of the Earth after the events of the disaster-porn epic, which opens on Nov. 13.
"The movie talks about the varied reactions people have in the face of disaster and who should survive and how we carry on and what parts of our culture do we save. The TV show could carry on all that," Emmerich says.
EW claims Gordon is already in talks with ABC to set up the pilot there.
