This Week In Heat Vision breakdown
Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, who co-wrote 2010's The Sorcerer's Apprentice starring Nicolas Cage, are rewriting a script based on an original screenplay by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (2009's Friday the 13th).
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is the area that stretches between the Florida Straits, Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Over the years, several ships and planes have disappeared while in the area under mysterious circumstances. Theories centered on paranormal or extraterrestrial causes have long swirled around these strange disappearances.
The Bermuda Triangle seems to be a hot spot for Hollywood right now as this is the second project currently brewing about the area. As The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reported, Ouija screenwriters Juliet Snowden and Stiles White are rewriting the script for Universal's untitled Bermuda Triangle movie. Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark are producing that project for Bluegrass Films.
Miro and Bernard are a longtime writing team who also worked on the script for 2010's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time starring Jake Gyllenhaal. They're also working on the crime TV series Narcos for Netflix. They're repped by UTA and McKuin Frankel Whitehead.
