Now that Pacific Rim has shown the world that kaiju films can make money in the US, new projects are trickling in. The newest? Bryan Singer, the guy who put X-Men movies on the map, is making a 90 minute film-length pilot about kaiju for the Syfy network. That’s right, Syfy - the people who brought us Sharknado.
The film is called Creature At Bay, and follows the aftermath of the US military’s takedown of a rampaging kaiju on the northern Californian coast. A middle management guy from the California Emergency Management Agency is in charge of cleaning up the aftermath of the battle from a small town that is suddenly famous worldwide due to the kaiju.
Would you watch an ongoing kaiju aftermath show on the Syfy network?
