We haven’t had a really good movie about the infamous Bermuda Triangle in years. That’s a shame, too, because the legends surrounding this area are plentiful.
As fans of the paranormal, we’re elated to tell you that THR is reporting that none other than Sam Raimi is working on a new film about this hotbed of supernatural activity.
The director, best known for his Spider-Man and Evil Dead movies, is boarding the mystery thriller project set up at Skydance Productions.
Skydance has one of three Bermuda Triangle projects in development, with Universal and Warner Bros. also developing their own tales about the infamous patch of the Caribbean where planes and ships have inexplicably gone missing.
In such a competitive environment, all the companies are keeping their own takes super-secret for fear of letting out who or what is behind the disappearances. Even getting the directing gig was controlled: Prospective filmmakers had to go to Skydance’s offices just to read the script.
Plot details for this project are, of course, being kept submerged, but it is known that Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, the co-writers on The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, penned the script.
