Sam Raimi is talks to direct a Bermuda Triangle project for Skydance, TheWrap has learned.
Skydance has one of three Bermuda Triangle projects in development around Hollywood. Screenwriter Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, who co-wrote 2010’s “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” are rewriting a script based on an original screenplay by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift.
The filmmaker, best known for his “Spider-Man” and “Evil Dead” films last directed “Oz the Great and Powerful” for Disney.
Universal and Warner Bros. are also developing their own takes about the Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, a loosely-defined 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.
“Ouija” screenwriters Juliet Snowden and Stiles White are rewriting the script for Universal’s untitled “Bermuda Triangle” movie.
Warner Bros. closed a mid-six figure deal for “The Bermuda Triangle,” a spec script by Daniel Kunka.
The vicinity of the Bermuda Triangle is one of the most-heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world, with ships frequently crossing through it for ports in the Americas, Europe and the Caribbean islands. Cruise ships and pleasure craft regularly sail through the region, and commercial and private aircraft routinely fly over it.
Raimi is repped by CAA and Hansen Jacobson.
The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news about Raimi’s involvement with the project.
