Roland Emmerich may be preparing to stick his thumb in Hollywood’s eye yet again. This time, the director of dubious-quality box office smashes such as Independence Day and 2012 is set to commit something near blasphemy in Hollywood with a new project about T.E. Lawrence, the man who was the inspiration for one of film’s all-time masterpieces, Lawrence of Arabia.

Deadline reports that Emmerich is on board to produce a six-hour miniseries on the life of T.E. Lawrence, the British Army officer whose exploits fighting alongside Arab insurgents against the Ottoman Empire during World War I were the source material for Lawrence of Arabia. The film won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director honors for David Lean. It placed in the top ten of both the 1998 and 2007 editions of the American Film Institute’s 100 Years...100 Movies list.

In other words, it’s the last project any true buff would want to see Emmerich, the Razzie Award-winning director of Godzilla,  get his grubby little hands on.

As if Emmerich’s involvement with the project wasn’t enough to make film aficionados nauseous, it will be produced in conjunction with FreemantleMedia, the company that gave us American Idol and The Biggest Loser. That should really cause David Lean and T.E. Lawrence to both spin in their graves.
