Foundation gets a new writer

03 October 2011

Roland Emmerich’s adaptation of Issac Asimov’s Foundation has got itself a new writer, in the shape of Dante Harper.

Harper will be taking over from Robert Rodat, who recently passed up the opportunity to write the film.

The books that the film will based on focuses on mathematician Hari Seldon as he works out the future through the use of some extremely complex mathematical formulas, and finds that the outcome doesn’t look too great. Basically he predicts the fall of the Galactic Empire and begins to set up a plan for prevention.

The sci-fi series itself is made up of seven volumes, and contains quite a few themes so Harper definitely has his work cut out for him. Harper is already quite well known after writing Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and All You Need is Kill.

So we just have to sit back and wait and hope that he turns this into something special.
