Guillermo del Toro has had his crack at giant, city-wrecking monsters, and now director Bryan Singer will be putting his own spin on kaiju. His Bad Hat Harry Productions is developing a pilot script for a new giant monster series, Creature At Bay, for Syfy.


Deadline reports that the 90-minute pilot script will be written by John Cabrera, co-creator of the web series H+, with Singer co-executive producing with Cabrera and Jason Taylor, Bad Hat Harry's President of Production.

Here's the concept, which sounds pretty intriguing:

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.
