Cable network FX has bought the TV rights to brand-new mega-blockbuster 2012. The movie will air in -- you guessed it -- 2012.

The Roland Emmerich disaster epic, which earned a staggering $225 million worldwide in its opening weekend, was acquired by FX for the standard amount: 12 percent of its final domestic box-office tally.

Which, of course, could be quite a hefty sum given 2012’s likely $200 million-plus trajectory.

The network also acquired the surprise hit zom-com Zombieland, starring Woody Harrelson.
