On Wednesday morning, screenwriter John Orloff told Cinematical that 'Anonymous,' his upcoming collaboration with '2012' director Roland Emmerich, is going to change the way people see the former purveyor of big-screen disasters. "I think people are just going to think of Roland as an entirely different director after they see this film," John Orloff said via telephone. "I'm really, really enthusiastic."
Orloff's current project is 'Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole,' an adaptation of the first three installments in Kathyrn Lasky's novel series. He insists that 'Anonymous,' which chronicles an Elizabethan-era dispute over the ownership of Shakespeare's plays, is a one-of-a-kind movie, with or without Emmerich's career-changing participation. "It's 'All the President's Men' in Elizabethan England," he said. "It is a period piece, and it's the most complicated structure that I've ever written – one of the most complicated structures I've ever seen in a movie, actually. It's a really intense film."
