Spider-Man Director In Talks For Bermuda Triangle Mystery Thriller

  • Written by Gamespot

Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is in talks to direct a "mystery thriller" about the Bermuda Triangle, according to a story from The Hollywood Reporter.

Raimi would direct the Skydance Productions Bermuda Triangle film, which is one of three movies based on the mysterious geographic spot on the Earth where planes and vessels have gone missing. Major film companies Universal and Warner Bros. are also making movies about the Bermuda Triangle.

"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," THR said. "Even getting the directing gig was controlled: Prospective filmmakers had to go to Skydance's offices just to read the script."

Skydance has produced movies like Star Trek: Beyond and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.

Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, who wrote the script for the video game movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, are writing the script for Skydance's untitled Bermuda Triangle film. According to THR, Skydance sought Johnny Depp to star in the movie at one point, though there have been no announcements so far about casting.

The last movie that Raimi directed was Disney's Oz: The Great and Powerful. He was in talks to direct the Warcraft movie, but dropped out and later claimed that Blizzard mismanaged its production.
