Michael Bay to Make Strieber’s 2012 ?


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.

The site says that DreamWorks-based producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (upcoming Transformers and Star Trek) of Kurtzman/Orci are producing and may write the script as well.
