Scott Derrickson to Direct Bermuda Triangle Movie, Chris Evans May Lead

A Bermuda Triangle action flick is being developed by Skydance for quite some time, and now it seems production is gaining some steam.

Though Sam Raimi was at some point close to filling the director’s chair, now Variety reports that the movie will get a Marvel Cinematic Universe duo in the leading roles. Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson will rewrite the script and direct the movie, while Chris Evans, who played Captain America, might fill the lead role.

Apart from rewriting the script alongside his writing partner C. Robert Cargill, Derrickson is also set to executive produce the movie. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Bonnie Curtis, and Julie Lynn will produce.

In January, Derrickson stepped down from directing the Doctor Strange sequel. Evans had a very busy 2019, with appearances in Avengers: Endgame, which became the highest-grossing movie of all time, and the Oscar-nominated Knives Out, which earned $300 million. He will next appear in Defending Jacob, which premiers in April on Apple.

The plot of the developing movie is still unknown, apart from it taking place in the mysterious area.
