A secret project of the '2012' helmer, 'The Zone' reportedly will be presented in a kind of found footage like 'Cloverfield'.

Roland Emmerich is reportedly making another alien invasion movie after 1996 "Independence Day". According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), the German filmmaker is secretly prepping to shoot "The Zone" which will be made with only $5 million budget.

"The Zone" allegedly will be in the same vein of Matt Reeves' "Cloverfield", being presented in found footage with relatively unknown cast. Plot details of the improv-based movie are not yet known but rumor has it two leads have just been cast, "one playing a haggard journalist in his 40s or 50s, the other a black man in his early to mid 20's, the cameraman."

THR further reports Sony will distribute the movie as a negative pick-up. French writer-director Guillaume Tunzini reportedly writes the script while Loucas George serves as a producer. Production could start in mid-November.

Roland Emmerich is currently in post-production of "Anonymous", which is set for September 23, 2011 release in the U.S. The 54-year-old director's latest film which has hit theaters was "2012 (2009)" which was made with an estimated $200 million budget.
