Oh, Roland Emmerich. You can't do that on television!

Movieweb is exclusively reporting that Emmerich once had plans to do a television series that would have served as a sequel to his latest global disaster epic, '2012.' However, those plans have now been foiled, because "the TV people," as Emmerich calls them, have proclaimed that '2013' is simply too big for the small screen.

Emmerich goes on to say that producer Mark Gordon is looking for a way to make the show cheaper, but he doesn't have high hopes, nor does he want his vision to be compromised. He then goes on to compare his project to, of all things, Noah's Ark. Oh, Roland Emmerich. You can't do that on television!

'2013' would've chronicled the survivors of the global catastrophe depicted in '2012' traveling to Africa and trying to rebuild humanity. It is unknown if anyone from the feature film would've been involved with the television series.

Emmerich is known for his blockbuster disaster flicks, having previously tried to wipe us out with 'Independence Day' (1996) and 'The Day After Tomorrow' (2004).

'2012' has grossed an impressive $166 million at the box office.
