Late last year, Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson departed the film’s upcoming sequel. Additionally, following the end of Captain America’s story-arc in Avengers: Endgame, Chris Evans is looking to explore new and exciting creative avenues. As first reported by THR, the two MCU alumnus will team-up for the upcoming film from Skydance Bermuda.
Interestingly enough, Bermuda was originally set to be directed by Spider-Man 2‘s Sam Raimi. However, with Raimi in talks to direct Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the two acclaimed filmmakers have essentially swapped films.
Evans, who played Steve Rogers AKA Captain America in a total of 9 films over the course of 9 years, is entering the prime of career. Following a standout role in Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, the actor will next appear as dentist Orin Scrivello in The Little Shop of Horrors remake. That film will see Evans reunite with his fellow Avenger Scarlett Johanson.
Bermuda will, expectedly, center around the Bermuda Triangle. The film originally featured a script from Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (Sorcerer’s Apprentice). However, the script will now receive the rewrite treatment from Derrickson and his longtime collaborator C. Robert Cargill.
