Roland Emmerich’s love/hate relationship with planet Earth continues as he prepares to shop a new disaster film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Independence Day producer has a new film titled Moonfall that he is looking for international distribution for.

Emmerich’s Centropolis Entertainment will produce the film which imagines the moon being knocked out of its orbit by a mysterious force. With the moon on a collision course with the Earth, it’s up to a ragtag team to launch a last-ditch mission to find out what happened and save the planet.

Production is set to start early next year and no cast has been announced. Roland Emmerich is the producer of Independence Day and its sequel, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow and Hell. He directed the films 2012, Stargate, The Patriot and White House Down.
