Sam Raimi Directing Thriller About the Mysterious Bermuda Triangle

Be excited. Don’t even bother containing it.

We reported way back in the summer of 2015 that Skydance Productions was developing a film based on the creepy Bermuda Triangle, the legendary and mysterious Caribbean area where planes and ships inexplicably have gone missing. Ready for an incredibly awesome update? THR is reporting today that Sam Raimi is in talks to direct the film for Skydance!

Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, who co-wrote 2010’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice starring Nicolas Cage, rewrote an original screenplay by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Freddy vs. Jason and 2009’s Friday the 13th).

The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is the area that stretches between the Florida Straits, Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Over the years, several ships and planes have disappeared while in the area under mysterious circumstances. Theories centered on paranormal or extraterrestrial causes have long swirled around these strange disappearances.

Universal and Warner Bros. are also developing Bermuda Triangle films.

    It’s about time a quality film was made about this (other than Triangle).

    Excited.

    Only saw one other B-Triangle movie. Was a sci-fi flick that tried to create some form of physical form of the fourth dimension.

    If anyone has still not seen the movie Triangle by Christopher Smith starring Melissa George – please do. Then – go to youtube – and look at the theories all based on the movie – it’s quite fascinating. Cuz really – when did it start?

      Yep, Triangle was an awesome film.

    • Thanks for the recommendation.

    I was hoping that the Bermuda Triangle would be the theme for AHS next season…
    Anyway, a film by Sam Raimi is much better. Excited indeed!

      That’s a pretty good idea dude. How would they pull that off though? Maybe some voodoo type shit on an island in the BT maybe? That might work. Start writing!!! Haha

        I was thinking about a cruise ship. The Bermuda Triangle could be the main theme or just the halloween episodes. I just want a theme involving the sea.

  • Mike tantatelli

    I’ll check it out. Why the hell not right? Lol

  • This sounds amazing. He should be able to knock this out of the park.

    Excellent idea for Raimi! I’ve sailed through the triangle a number of times and never saw or experienced anything out of the ordinary, (and not for lack of looking), but I’m still fascinated by it.
