The region of the Atlantic Ocean known as the Bermuda Triangle has long been a source of fascination for anyone intrigued by the mysterious occurrences associated with it, and now it appears that it’s also earned the attention of Hollywood in a big way. A new report indicates that not one but three films are currently in development right now that feature the Bermuda Triangle as a major plot element.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, both Terminator Genisys producers Skydance Productions and Jurassic World studio Universal Pictures are in various stages of development on big-screen projects involving the infamous stretch of ocean loosely defined by the triangle formed between the coasts of Miami, FL, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, and the island of Bermuda. And as points out, there’s also another film in development at Warner Bros. Pictures titled The Bermuda Triangle to add to the mix.

While it’s nothing new for studios to develop projects with similar themes in parallel (for example, the meteor-related disaster films of the 1990s, Sudden Impact and Armageddon), the films generally tend to differ on their approach to the theme. Details are scarce regarding the three Bermuda Triangle movies at this point, but the projects are likely to diverge more as the studios learn more about the competing projects and look to differentiate their own films.

The script commissioned by Skydance is being written by Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard, the co-writers on The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, who are working from a screenplay originally penned by the duo responsible for 2009’s Friday the 13th reboot, Damian Shannon and Mark Swift.

At Universal Pictures, Ouija screenwriters Juliet Snowden and Stiles White are currently rewriting a Bermuda Triangle-based script from Spider-Man 2 writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar. Snowden and Stiles were reportedly brought in late on Ouija to bring the film’s budget down to a more manageable level, so it could be that Universal’s Bermuda Triangle movie could be a lower-budget project, too.

The third project has been in development for quite a while now, with Warner picking up a script written by 12 Rounds writer Daniel Kunka back in 2013 that was envisioned as an action movie set in the Bermuda Triangle. There’s been little movement on that project since it was acquired by Warner, but with the other two films moving forward, the studio is likely to take another look at its own project.

Although the Bermuda Triangle is one of the more famous hotspots for conspiracy theorists, there have been surprisingly few major movie releases tied to the notorious region. The 2009 thriller Triangle is one of the more recent projects (though it never specifically identifies its setting as The Bermuda Triangle), followed by several low-budget, made-for-television movies and limited series. The little-known 1978 film The Bermuda Triangle (pictured above) may be the most prominent film to specifically focus on the Bermuda Triangle, in fact.

There’s currently no release dates set for any of the films in development.

All the Transformers movies, ranked
Optimus Prime readies to fight in Transformers.

From giant robot fights to ultra-cheesy relationship dynamics, the Transformers franchise has brought spectacle to the big screen for decades now. The franchise, which just welcomed its eighth film, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, has brought in billions at the box office, making it a modern-day action hit that won't fail to be remembered — for better or worse.

Even before action aficionado Michael Bay transformed the Hasbro toys into live-action superheroes, Transformers had been a part of popular culture for years. The franchise's immense success has allowed it to grow considerably past its origins as a giant-robot-versus-giant-robot showdown. Its expansive mythology is set to grow even further in Rise of the Beasts, which will pit the Autobots against Unicron, a villainous planet-eating Transformer.
