Moonfall Director Roland Emmerich on Film’s Idea “I Thought What Happens if This Object Falls Down to Earth?”

With many sci-fi disaster films in Hollywood like 2012, Godzilla, Independence Day, Geostorm, San Andreas and the most recent Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Up, here’s another one with a huge cast directed by Robert Emmerich. Moonfall, a two-hour-long movie deals with the space mission to save humankind from extinction. The story is about our planet earth on the verge of annihilation, as a mysterious force knocks the moon from its orbit and sends it rushing toward a collision course with Earth. The film’s lead character Jo sees a chance to prevent it from causing destruction. The film is created around a compelling narrative with the director racking his grey matter on the theme of ‘What if’.

Moonfall will also focus on the events that follow after the moon begins a deadly collision course to destroy the earth. A group of three individuals take the responsibility to fight the impossible odds to save the Earth. Recollecting the thought that clouded his mind before he sat down to write, “I thought that was an intriguing idea for a movie. What happens if this object falls down to Earth?”

Talking about how he expanded on the idea, he further said, “I was equally fascinated by the challenge of creating characters who embark on a mission to the Moon to save our planet, as well as the families who stay behind and struggle to survive the cataclysms that come with the Moon’s collision course with earth.”

Actress Halle Berry, who plays a former NASA astronaut shed light on what drew her to her part in the film, “She’s a woman who’s surviving in a man’s world. Fowler is very willful. I love women and characters like this because she’s strong in her work, but she’s also a mother.” She also revealed that initially, the part was intended for a male actor, “Credit to Roland for realizing that this could be a female character and still have the same impact.”

Actor Patrick Wilson, who has worked with Emmerich on his 2019 directorial ‘Midway’, spoke about his second collaboration with the director on ‘Moonfall’, “‘Moonfall’ is a great concept. I love sci-fi and don’t get a chance to do it a lot, so that was a big bonus.” For British actor John Bradley, “Houseman is one of the most fun characters” he has “ever created”.
