The Bermuda Triangle has long been the focus of many a spooky story and a halfway decent horror movie (Triangle, anyone?). Considering this arguably untapped resource, maybe the Triangle just needs a proper auteur to bring it to screen.
Plot details are currently under wraps, particularly as Universal and Warner Bros are also reportedly developing their own movies on The Bermuda Triangle.
We do know, however, that Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, who scripted Nic Cage vehicle The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, along with, er, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, penned this one, too.
Their version follows a previous take, which was written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, the duo responsible for 2009’s Friday the 13th reboot.
Skydance has been working to get the project off the ground for several years, even attempting to get Johnny Depp involved back in 2013.
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, refers to a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
In spite of this, the area is one of the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world. Cruise ships and pleasure craft regularly sail through the region, and commercial and private aircraft routinely fly over it.
Stay tuned to Wicked Horror for more on this project as it’s announced.
