If the chaos that struck the entire world in the apocalyptic special effects extravaganza 2012 was just a little too much for you, then maybe a more localized disaster flick would be better. 24 Frames has word that a new film is being developed about the biggest Earthquake to hit the nation straight from the infamous San Andreas fault line. And boasting the title of San Andreas 3D, it's clear that this is going to be one of those in-your-face disaster flicks with debris and more flying at your face. A director is currently being sought for the film that sounds like a segment straight out of 2012, but hopefully with more substantial characters.
As for the talent on the page, Allan Loeb (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Rock of Ages) is behind the script, so hopefully there's more than some two-dimensional characters running around trying to survive. However, producing the film is Beau Flynn, the man behind Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D, a film that had fun theme park 3D with cheap special effects and was generally displeasing altogether. And honestly, the story following a a man forced to go on the road to reconcile with his children and estranged wife who's decided to shack up with another man doesn't sound all that original. However, I'll wait to see who comes on board to direct before anymore judgment.
