    Michael Bay is looking to the future.
    Director is attached to reteam with writing-producing duo Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci on sci-fi project "2012," based on bestselling author Whitley Strieber's upcoming tome of the same name, for Warner Bros.

    Story follows an academic researcher who opens a portal into a parallel universe and makes contact with his double in order to stop an apocalypse foreseen by the ancient Mayans.

    Kurtzman and Orci, who penned Bay's upcoming DreamWorks tentpole "Transformers" and brought the director aboard "2012," will produce.

    Warners nailed down the film rights to Strieber's book on Friday and continues negotiations with Orci, Kurtzman and Bay.

    Bay is in post with "Transformers." He was last in theaters with "The Island."

    Kurtzman and Orci are the writers on J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Trek" for Paramount. Pic is set to begin lensing this fall, resurrecting the lucrative franchise.

    Strieber has several projects set up at other studios, including Sony's adaptation of his "The Grays," which Cary Brokaw is producing and scribe Ken Nolan adapting. His tome "The Day After Tomorrow" was the inspiration for Fox's film of the same name.

    Bay is repped by William Morris Agency, while Kurtzman and Orci are repped by Creative Artists Agency. Innovative Artists Agency reps Strieber
