I know it’s not really horror, but all the other sites are covering it and it is about the apocalypse. Today it was announced that Amanda Peet (X-Files: I Want to Believe; pictured inside) has landed the female lead in Roland Emmerich’s epic disaster project 2012. Peet is joining a strong ensemble cast led by John Cusack that includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Danny Glover and Oliver Platt. “2012” revolves around a global cataclysm and the heroic struggle of the survivors. Peet is playing Cusack’s ex-wife, newly married to a wealthy man. Cusack plays a divorced father trying to become a writer while holding a job as a limo driver. Emmerich wrote the script with Harald Kloser. Barring an actors strike, the movie will shoot in July. The release date for “2012” is July 10, 2009.
