Director Roland Emmerich is not known for his delicate touch and story telling depth, which Isaac Asimov's 'Foundation' series is likely to need. Emmerich talks about why he choose Rodat and why he's set to direct all 3 'Foundation' movies, rather than just one. Perhaps Robert Rodat may help soften the approach of a director with all the subtlety of a nuclear detonation. "
