Dey, Nickelodeon to visit ‘2012’

Astle, Ember on board to write family film

Director Tom Dey is reteaming with his “Failure to Launch” scribes Tom Astle and Matt Ember on the broad family action-adventure “2012” for Paramount Pictures’ Nickelodeon Movies.

Dey will develop with an eye to direct, while Ember and Astle have sealed deals to pen the script.

Storyline revolves a family who goes on vacation in December 2012, just as the Mayan calendar is coming to a close. Over the decades, many have prophesized that the world will end when the ancient calendar ceases on Dec. 21, 2012.

Dey is in talks to direct another film before tackling other projects, “2012” included.

Astle and Ember penned the script for Warners’ upcoming “Get Smart.”

Ember and Astle also are penning Warner Bros. direct-to-DVD sequel “Get Smarter: Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control,” which is in pre-production.
