The Bermuda Triangle is such a fascinating subject, you'd think we'd have a definitive film about it by now. It hasn't happened yet (though it has been attempted several times, most recently by the mind-bender TRIANGLE), but Warner Bros. is hoping they have the answer in the form of an action sci-fi script they just purchased from 12 ROUNDS scribe Daniel Kunka called, you guessed it, THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE.
Of course, we don't have any solid details regarding THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE at the moment; the project is shrouded in secrecy. According to Deadline, however, Warner Bros. is hoping to use the famed Bermuda Triangle mythology – planes and ships go missing without a trace mysteriously, never to be seen again – and turn it into a tent pole action franchise.
The film will be a co-production between Atlas Entertainment and Madhouse Entertainment. Atlas’s Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will produce with Madhouse’s Adam Kolbrenner.
If you're unaware of the history of the Bermuda Triangle, here's a slice of info courtesy of History.mil:
The "Bermuda Triangle" or "Devil's Triangle" is an imaginary area located off the southeastern Atlantic coast of the United States of America, which is noted for a supposedly high incidence of unexplained disappearances of ships and aircraft. The apexes of the triangle are generally believed to be Bermuda; Miami, Florida; and San Juan, Puerto Rico. The US Board of Geographic Names does not recognize the Bermuda Triangle as an official name. The US Navy does not believe the Bermuda Triangle exists. Since the days of early civilization many thousands of ships have sunk and/or disappeared in waters around the world due to navigational and other human errors, storms, piracy, fires, and structural/mechanical failures. Aircraft are subject to the same problems, and many of them have crashed at sea around the globe. Often, there were no living witnesses to the sinking or crash, and hence the exact cause of the loss and the location of the lost ship or aircraft are unknown. A large number of pleasure boats travel the waters between Florida and the Bahamas. All too often, crossings are attempted with too small a boat, insufficient knowledge of the area's hazards, and a lack of good seamanship.
