If you believe the tinfoil-hat crowd, weíre all going to die in 2012. Itís all the fault of those pesky Mayans, who 2012 apocalypse believers insist predicted some dire catastrophe will strike in that year. Proponents disagree on what form this planet-leveling disaster will take, with theories ranging from wayward asteroids to titanic solar flares to a return of Gozer. Personally, Iím betting that Hollywoodís penchant for remakes will continue to accelerate to the point where they eventually greenlight a remake of a film that hasnít been made yet, birthing a singularity that will swallow the entire planet.
In the meantime, however, Hollywood has never met an apocalypse they didnít want to slap up onscreen and riddle with questionable special effects. Disaster-master Roland Emmerich already has an upcoming movie based on the subject, and now the Hollywood Reporter brings news that ex-X-Men director Bryan Singer is shepherding a new six-hour miniseries for SyFy focused on the 2012 Mayan Doomsday Prophecy of Doom. The project is described as a mixture of National Treasure and The Da Vinci Code, two names that combine like Voltron to instantly destroy a good portion of my interest.
Mayan Hard 2012: Mayan Harder isnít the first time Singer has done business with SyFy. Back in 2005 Singer collaborated with Dean Devlin and Farscape sooper-genius Rockne S. OíBannon to create Sci-Fiís aptly named Bermuda Triangle miniseries, The Triangle.
