Universal Picks Up Bermuda Triangle Movie Project from 'Smallville' Showrunners
Universal is hoping to shed some light on the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, picking up a pitch with superpowered scribe team Alfred Gough and Miles Millar on board to write.
Scott Stuber, who produced Universal's hit Safe House and also is behind the studio's summer tentpole Battleship, is attached to produce.
No details are being revealed other than it is an original idea from Stuber centered on the infamous Caribbean area traditionally cornered by the Florida Straits, Bermuda and Puerto Rico. The area has been home to a several unusual disappearances attributed to supernatural or alien origins.
Gough and Millar will now write the script.
The duo are best known for developing and showrunning Smallville but also have worked in features, working on Shanghai Noon and Spider-Man 2. They are developing an adaptation of the young-adult book Homelanders, set up at Summit, which may act as their directorial debut.
Gough and Millar are repped by CAA and attorney Michael Gendler.
