Believe it or not, advance word on Roland Emmerich's Shakespeare conspiracy movie "Anonymous" is actually good. We shit you not. And while the movie is a bit of a departure for the usually disaster-happy director, lately he's surrounding himself with projects that are more in line with his established oeuvre. Up next he's got the epic and somewhat secretive "Singularity," which already has a May 17, 2013 release date. And oh yeah, he was also offered "Asteroids" this summer (though it doesn't seem like he's taken it). But alas, on the backburner for a couple of years now has been an adaptation of Isaac Asimov's classic "Foundation" series.
