Scott Derrickson has seemingly found his next feature film.
Variety reports that the Doctor Strange director has been tasked to co-write and direct Skydance’s long-gestating thriller project Bermuda, which will focus on the mysterious Bermuda Triangle.
Captain America star Chris Evans is also said to be circling the lead role.
Skydance’s long-in-development Bermuda Triangle thriller, “Bermuda,” looks to be gaining steam, as sources tell Variety that “Doctor Strange” helmer Scott Derrickson has signed on to rewrite and direct the pic, with Chris Evans circling the lead role.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, except for the fact that it will be set in the mysterious patch of the Caribbean where planes and ships have gone missing over the years.
Derrickson will be working on script rewrites with writing partner C. Robert Cargill on the script, the pair worked together on Doctor Strange.
Interesting enough, Sam Raimi has been attached to direct the project for years and is now reportedly directing Doctor Strange Into The Multiverse of Madness after Derrickson exited over creative differences.
At one point Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds was linked for the lead and there had been plans to shoot in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
It’s not a John Constantine movie, but it’s certainly a cool premise for Scott to tackle.
