In the world of filmmaking, there’s been a revolving door of directors for the enigmatic Bermuda Triangle project. The latest captain at the helm is Marc Webb, who’s been chosen to steer this mysterious ship for Skydance, as confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.
Skydance has been working on bringing the Bermuda Triangle mystery to the big screen for some time now. Previously, Sam Raimi, known for his work on Spider-Man, was attached to the project, and then Scott Derrickson, who left his directorial duties on the Doctor Strange sequel, briefly took the reins in 2020. Interestingly, Chris Evans was once set to star in Derrickson’s version of the film.
As of now, the project is a blank canvas with no actors or script in place. They’re waiting for the conclusion of the WGA strike to hire a writer. The movie draws inspiration from the infamous section of the Caribbean where planes and ships are said to have mysteriously vanished, never to return.
The production team includes David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger as producers, with Aimee Rivera overseeing Skydance.
Skydance has recently been in the spotlight for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 and the blockbuster hit Top Gun: Maverick, which raked in $1.49 billion in revenue last year.
Marc Webb, who initially made waves with 500 Days of Summer, is no stranger to superhero territory, having directed two films in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise with Andrew Garfield. His next project in line is Disney’s Snow White, already in the can. Webb is represented by CAA.
