TMZ.com has learned that Michael Bay will produce (and possibly direct) an adaptation of sci-fi author Whitley Strieber’s upcoming novel, 2012: The War for Souls, at Warner Bros. Pictures.
According to some folk traditions, 2012 is suppossedly to be a year of either great spiritual transformation — or apocalypse. The Mayan calendar held that it would be a time when the existing world order would be reversed. Nostradamus forecasted that a rather large comet would rudely arrive on Earth’s doorstep no later than 2012. The Roman Catholic Saint Malachy predicted that in 2012, the last Pope would arrive, triggering Judgment Day.
