Not content with just sinking Jules Verne’s mysterious island, director Brad Peyton is now in talks to direct the big-budget disaster flick “San Andreas 3D” for New Line. The movie will, of course, be in 3D, in case you were wondering why they officially added the “3D” part into the title.
The film would “center on a massive Earthquake that hits California”, no doubt involving the infamous San Andreas Fault.
Peyton would direct from a script by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore (with a rewrite by Allan Loeb) for New Line. He’ll have a budget of around $100 million, which should be plenty to demolish most of California to great effect.
Assuming Peyton signs on, I’m not sure how “San Andreas 3D” would impact “Lobo”, the live-action adaptation of the D.C. Comics character that he was previously attached to direct a few months back. I’ll be honest with you — I’d much rather see that movie than a disaster flick about an Earthquake hitting California. Didn’t we already get this on a global scale with Roland Emmerich’s “2012”?
