Fresh off wrapping Disney’s upcoming Snow White movie starring Rachel Zegler and Gal Gadot, filmmaker Marc Webb has signed on to direct Skydance’s long-gestating Bermuda Triangle movie.
Skydance has spent years developing the project but it’s starting from scratch with Webb at the helm. The company will hire a writer once the WGA strike ends, and Webb will consult with that writer throughout the development process, though he isn’t expected to co-write the script.
There’s no official logline for Bermuda, which is envisioned as a big-budget action-adventure movie, but it will center around the unexplained disappearances of numerous ships and planes that have gone missing in the middle of the Caribbean over the years.
David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger will produce for Skydance, whose Aimee Rivera will oversee the project for the company.
Skydance recently produced Top Gun: Maverick and Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, with Part Two due out next summer, though it will almost assuredly be delayed until 2025, according to sources. the company also produced Gal Gadot‘s action movie Heart of Stone for Netflix, for whom Skydance is also making a sequel to The Old Guard. Additionally, Skydance produced Scott Derrickson‘s upcoming Apple TV+ movie The Gorge starring Miles Teller and Anya Taylor-Joy.
After making a name for himself in the world of music videos, Webb broke out on the feature side with the anti-rom-com (500) Days Of Summer before directing The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel, both of which starred Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. After making two smaller films — Gifted and The Only Living Boy in New York — Webb is returning to blockbuster territory with Snow White, which is slated to hit theaters on March 22.
It’s been seven years since Webb directed a movie, and I’m not terribly excited about his take on Snow White, but it was probably a good move to line up his next high-profile gig a little early, and he’s actually a nice get for Skydance on this project, which has proven difficult to crack.
Webb’s recent TV credits include Just Beyond, Why Women Kill, and the pilot for ABC’s Rebel. He’s represented by CAA, and his involvement with Bermuda was first reported by Deadline.
