LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Cable's Syfy, formerly known as the Sci Fi Channel, is reteaming with "Valkyrie" director Bryan Singer for a six-hour limited series.
Singer, who first collaborated with the network on the 2005 miniseries "The Triangle," will produce a new project in the vein of "The Da Vinci Code" and "National Treasure."
The untitled project is described as an action-adventure about the Mayan calendar predicting the end of the world.
"I have always been fascinated by the various myths and conspiracy theories surrounding the Mayan calendar," Singer was quoted as saying in a statement. "Our story will explore whether we are truly alone in the universe and other related mysteries, all of which are set against the backdrop of an incredibly exciting and fast-paced adventure."
Singer recently directed Tom Cruise in the Hitler thriller "Valkyrie." His other credits include "Superman Returns" and "The Usual Suspects."
