According to The Hollywood Reporter Syfy is reteaming with director Bryan Singer (Superman Returns) to create a six-hour limited series.

Singer first worked with the network to produce the 2005 miniseries The Triangle. This new project for SyFy is said to be similar to The Da Vinci Code and National Treasure.

The film itself will be "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 stated. "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."
