It sounds like Chris Evans is going to be very busy now that he’s done for the foreseeable future with Captain America. The actor has just booked his part in the next restoration of the Little Shop of Horrors as the sadistic dentist Orin Scrivello. He is currently playing a role in the development of the sci-fi project Bermuda at Skydance. And yes, this is a movie about the famous Triangle of Bermuda.
Chris Evans Joins Bermuda Triangle Film
Reports have confirmed the news about the Bermuda triangle film that has been in the works since 2015 when Skydance rewrites Damian Shannon and Mark Swift with the Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (the Sorcerer’s Apprentice team) by Friday’s 13th reboot writers. Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers have written the newest draft of the script (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), but it will soon be revised.
Director Scott Derrickson has been on board in Bermuda recently departing from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Derrickson will not only direct Bermuda but will also produce the film and rewrite the script with his Doctor Strange collaborator C. Robert Cargill. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Bonnie Curtis, and Julie Lynn are also involved in the project as producers.
Bermuda And Derrickson
Funnily enough, this film has been flirted at one point with Spider-Man franchise producer Sam Raimi and is now heading the Marvel sequel he departed in January. Even though Derrickson did such an excellent job with Doctor Strange and the style of Sam Raimi’s directing lends itself to the sequel, both have similar tastes for storytelling. The fact that Raimi was almost in charge of Bermuda and Derrickson just reinforces that.
At present, plot details for Bermuda are being kept undercover. Still, the film takes place in this famous but enigmatic region of the Caribbean, where planes and ships have been missing for decades unexplainedly. There was no fantastic film about the Bermuda triangle, and I’m curious to see after seeing what Derrickson can do with horror and sci-fi if he does something like that. Much can be done with this enigmatic place in the middle of the film, and we hope to see Bermuda come together finally.
