Hollywood director Roland Emmerich has announced the end of his career. In his next and last film, it should be about the fact that the world is falling apart because of environmental disasters, the 67-year-old told "Bild am Sonntag".
The film is important to him: "In my opinion, the only way to wake people up is when they are terribly afraid of something." Two to three years would pass before the shooting. What comes after that, he doesn't know yet. Born in Stuttgart, Emmerich has been living in the USA for many years. Because of his disaster films like "Independence Day" or "The Patriot" he is sometimes called "Master of Disaster". Last Monday he was the producer at the German premiere of the fantasy film "The Magic Flute - The Legacy of the Magic Flute" in Munich.
