Bryan Singer developing new modern-day Kaiju monster series for Syfy

In addition to getting the X-Men back on track, Bryan Singer just took on an intriguing new project.

Singer is developing a new series called Creature at Bay for Syfy, which has just received a 90-minute pilot script order. The series will be set in a small town in the weeks and months following a Kaiju monster attack. 

Here’s how Deadline describes the project:

Creature At Bay is set in the wake of the US military taking down a giant, rampant creature — a modern-day “Kaiju” monster – just off the Northern California coast. A middle-management 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.

Singer is signed on to produce the series, while the pilot will be written by John Cabrera. Cabrera co-created the acclaimed H+ digital series in a previous collaboration with Singer, which is a pretty solid pedigree. H+ is awesome, and Cabrera definitely knows how to build suspense. 

This is definitely one of the most intriguing sci-fi projects we’ve heard about in a while, and it could make for a fascinating jumping-off point for a full series.
