Bryan Singer Producing Monster Series for Syfy

 

Bryan Singer

 

Bryan Singer, the feature film director currently helming the superhero mega-movie 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' is bringing his considerable talents to Syfy. Singer & his Bad Hat Harry Productions will be developing 'Creature at Bay' for the network; the series is being developed as a ninety-minute drama pilot. The best part? 'Creature at Bay' is about an actual creature--this is going to be a monster script!

John Cabrera, co-creator of Warner Bros.’ award winning sci-fi digital series 'H+,' will be writing the pilot for the series. 'H+' won several Streamy Awards (awards given to web-based media series), including Best Director and Best Action/Sci-Fi Series. Combining Singer's proven ability to helm science-fiction projects and Cabrera's up-and-coming success, this is a project to watch for. 

'Creature at Bay' is set in the wake of the US military taking down a giant, rampant creature--being described as a modern day "Kaiju" monster--just off the Northern California coast. A middle-Syfymanagement Undersecretary from the California Emergency Management Agency is charged with leading the clean-up efforts as the small town becomes the focus of the entire world. And, hopefully, there could be other creatures around the corner...

"Kaiju" is a Japanese word which literally translates to "strange creature." A Kaiju can be any marauding monster like Godzilla, Mothra, or other classic Japanese characters. A recent American representation of a Kaiju would be the monster central to the plot of 'Cloverfield.' 

Selling a monster series... where the monster is already dead? Something tells me there's more to this story than we already know. Keep an eye on TVRage for more as 'Creature at Bay' develops.

"A recent American representation of a Kaiju would be the monster central to the plot of 'Cloverfield.'" Try Pacific Rim which even used Kaiju in the advertizing materials!
