Roland Emmerich Producing Period Adventure Maya Lord
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.28.2014



Roland Emmerich (White House Down, Independence Day has signed on to develop and produce a feature adaptation of John Coe Robbins' historical novel Maya Lord. Deadline reports that Emmerich will produce the film through his Centropolis Entertainment production shingle. While he may sign on to direct it that might take a while; he currently has the LGBTQ rights-related period drama Stonewall and the sequel to Independence Day slated to be directed ahead of that one.

The novel is a fact-based tale about Gonzalo Guerrero, who was shipwrecked in a violent storm in 1511, and found himself cast away on an unknown shore in the New World. He and his Spaniard shipmates were enslaved by a Mayan tribe. With no hope of escape, the brilliant and pragmatic adventurer searches for a way to advance in a strange new culture. As one of the captives eventually joins Cortes in the conquest of Mexico, Gonzalo adopts Maya ways and rises to become a major warlord, defending the Maya against Cortes and other Spanish conquistadors. Guerrero, who married the daughter of a Maya chieftain, is generally regarded in Mexico as the father of the first Mestizo family.
