EXCLUSIVE: Skydance’s long-in-development Bermuda Triangle action-adventure pic Bermuda has landed a director as Marc Webb has closed a deal to helm the project.
While the studio has been working on the project for some time, this version is still in early days with no writer has been attached; until the WGA strike ends, that won’t change. Insiders add that once the strike ends and a writer can be attached, Webb would consult on the script but is not expected to co-write.
