The long in-gestation feature ‘Bermuda’ has finally landed itself a new director in the form of ‘Doctor Strange’ helmer, Scott Derrickson.
Not only that but ‘Captain America’ and ‘Knives Out’ star, Chris Evans is also being sought to take on the lead role.
At the moment, plot details are being kept a top-secret but from the title, you can guess what this feature may entail. It will be set in the mysterious patch of the Caribbean where planes and ships have gone missing over the years.
Derrickson will rewrite the script with his writing partner C. Robert Cargill rebuilding on the work of Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers latest draft. Derrickson will also exec produce. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn will produce.
Back in January, Derrickson walked away as director from the sequel to ‘Doctor Strange’ due to ‘creative differences’, he will remain as an executive producer on the title. He took to his social channels to announce his move.
“Marvel and I have mutually agreed to part ways on ‘Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences,” Derrickson tweeted. “I am thankful for our collaboration and will remain on as EP.”
Evans comes off the back of the colossal hit ‘Captain America’ and playing the role of the sly and conniving Ransom in Rian Johnson’s ‘Knives Out’. He is currently filming the limited series ‘Defending Jacob’ for Apple+ in which he stars and produces.
