Multiverse Movie-Swap: Derrickson Replaces Raimi (Replaces Derrickson)

Got it yet? 
No? Ok then, let’s work through this together, shall we? We shall.
Back in February, we reported that director Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Day the Earth Stood Still) was exiting Marvel Studios Dr. Strange sequel, Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (after having directed that highly successful first film) due to “creative differences”, ultimately being replaced by the legendary Sam Raimi, while he stayed on as executive producer.

It’s now being reported that Derrickson’s next project will be Skydance’s long-in -development Bermuda, an action/sci-fi thriller that has Chris Evans (Captain America, Knives Out, and the upcoming Little Shop of Horrors remake) in talks to play the lead.
So far, so normal, right? Wrong.
In a Strange, Multiversal twist, it seems that Derrickson is filling the director’s spot on this Bermuda Triangle-based actioner that had once been occupied by... Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Sony’s original Spider-Man trilogy).

Derrickson will be pulling screenwriter C. Robert Cargill (Sinister, Sinister 2, and yes...   Dr. Strange) through the time/space portal to rewrite the script, originally penned by Marvel-veterans Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard.
There are no plot details or release date just yet for Bermuda just yet, but given this project’s history/pedigree, it’s sure to be a scary and warped thrill-ride.
