Mario Van Peebles is all set to direct his own screenplay entitled The Uniter. According to Variety, Peebles has been working on the screenplay for more than six years now.

The film follows the adventures of a political fugitive who travels to the distant past to teach a thirteen year old how to use his powers to unite the two warring sections of the world. Inspiration for the film came from Peebles' travels to India and the mythology of the Aztec calendar ending in the year 2012.

The film will most likely begin shooting in the first weeks of January.
