It looks like there is going to be a lot of interest in the Bermuda Triangle on the big screen in upcoming years. At least that is what Skydance Productions, Warner Brothers, and Universal Studios are hoping as all three of them are currently developing films based on this mysterious area in the Caribbean. For those unfamiliar with the lore, the Bermuda Triangle had a few lost ships a long time ago and from that time came stories of countless boats and planes being lost in the area to never be found. While most of these stories were either proven as false or made up as fiction the idea of this area of the world being dangerous still persists to this day.
On Skydance’s side we see that writers Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard who are known for ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ currently penning a script. The two are taking on the script from a screenplay which was originally penned by the last ‘Friday the 13th’ writers Damian Shannon and Mark Swift.
For Universal Studios we see Juliet Snowden and Stiles White who worked together on ‘Ouija‘ tackling the script. The original pitch was from writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar who will be producing the film with Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark.
Finally Warner Brothers is also developing a script by Daniel Kunka. Only this last film has been referenced to as an action movie. That doesn’t mean it won’t have horror elements but it is a bit too early to tell if this one will be similar to the above films or go in a completely different direction.
With all of the writers for the first two films having success in the horror market I’m pretty sure that we’ll be in for at least a couple of horror movies here. Of course, with the Devil’s Triangle as it is also known having long been a place where rumored paranormal or extraterrestrial causes being the reason on why ships continue to go missing there can be quite a large variety on what we see when these movies hit the big screen.
Are you looking forward to a sudden influx of Bermuda Triangle movies? Would you rather see the cause of these disappearances by paranormal, extraterrestrial, or something else entirely? Share your thoughts below!
