Director Tom Dey is reteaming with his Failure to Launch screenwriters Tom Astle and Matt Ember on the broad family action-adventure 2012 for Paramount Pictures' Nickelodeon Movies.

According to Variety, Dey will develop with an eye to direct, while Ember and Astle have sealed deals to write the script.

The storyline revolves around a family who goes on vacation in December 2012, just as the Mayan calendar is coming to a close. Over the decades, many have prophesized that the world will end when the ancient calendar ceases on Dec. 21, 2012.

Astle and Ember wrote the script for Warners' upcoming Get Smart.
