Columbia Pictures has won the film rights to Foundation, a sci-fi trilogy written by Isaac Asimov. The studio is currently developing the property into a directorial vehicle for sci-fi, apocalyptic-thriller master Roland Emmerich, known for big-budget action flicks like The Day After Tomorrow and Independence Day.
Emmerich plans to produce the film via Centropolis, his production company. Foundation was originally a series of short stories published in a magazine back in 1942. The plot centers on humans who are living on different planets throughout the galaxy. Further details are not available at press time.
