Michael Bay Signs Up for "2012"

by | March 19, 2007 | Comments

No it’s not part of the series that includes "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "2010," but it looks like Michael Bay is going to helm the science-fiction adventure "2012: The War for Souls," based on an upcoming novel by Whitley Streiber.

The screenwriting / producing team of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who just got done working with Mr. Bay on "Transformers," are the ones who convinced the director to grab the gig, and it looks to be the director’s next project.

According to Variety, the story’s about "an academic researcher who opens a portal into a parallel universe and makes contact with his double in order to stop an apocalypse foreseen by the ancient Mayans."

Up next for Kurtzman & Orci is the J.J. Abrams version of "Star Trek." (Looks like these guys survived the "Island" implosion just fine.)
