It's been several years since the release of Sam Raimi's last feature film, Oz the Great and Powerful, but the Evil Dead filmmaker could potentially be coming back to the big screen soon.
According to THR, Raimi is in discussions to direct a "mystery thriller" about the Bermuda Triangle for Skydance Productions. Covering a vast area of the Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico, the Bermuda Triangle has long been a real life setting for bizarre disappearances of planes and ships. The mysteries of that stretch of sea are not only of interest to Skydance—Universal and Warner Bros. are also putting together projects based on the Bermuda Triangle.
Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (Narcos, The Great Wall, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, The Uninvited) penned the script for Skydance's Bermuda Triangle movie, with an earlier draft written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (2009's Friday the 13th, new Baywatch film). The movie has been in the works for quite some time. Back in 2013, Skydance set their sights on Johnny Depp for the lead role, but nothing has been solidified on the casting side.
Raimi recently returned to the Evil Dead franchise he created by directing the pilot episode of Ash vs Evil Dead. The filmmaker also directed 2009's Drag Me to Hell, and many are familiar with his work as director of the Spider-Man 2000s trilogy. We'll keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed on Raimi's next potential project.
