Even though the upcoming Battleship film isn’t anywhere near my most-anticipated of 2012, producer Scott Stuber does know how to pick some interesting projects to get behind. Vulture has just reported that the Role Models producer is returning to Universal for his next project, which will take him to uncharted and mysterious waters.
The original pitch for the project involves the Bermuda Triangle, which is most known for swallowing an entire training squadron of US Navy airmen in 1945. Iff you actually believe the mystery behind the Bermuda Triangle is beside the point, as Stuber has also brought along Smallville creator, Alfred Gough, and Miles Millar to write the screenplay for his project.
I can understand the appeal of having a film centered on such a mysterious stretch of Ocean, but this is one of many recent project that has Triangle as its main star. The final Indiana Jones film will possibly involve the Triangle, if it ever ends up getting made. WWE Studios has a found footage horror film titled Bermuda in the works, and we can’t forget (but maybe we’d like to) the Jack Black-led remake of Gulliver’s Travels, which came out just a little over a year ago. Then there is perhaps the best film of the bunch, Christopher Smith‘s underseen Triangle. I imagine this project will have much more bank behind it than any of the above, coming from someone behind Battleship.
What do you think about another Bermuda Triangle-centered film in the works?
