WWE Takes A "Found Footage" Trip To The BERMUDA TRIANGLE

WWE keeps pushing out the movies and this time we're going the "found footage" route to the Bermuda Triangle with BERMUDA

From the Press Release:
TAMFORD, Conn., January 20, 2012– WWE Studios (NYSE:WWE) announced today it has secured the rights to BERMUDA, a found footage horror spec script by Bobby Lee Darby and Nathan Brookes. WWE Studios beat out a number of bidders for the film. Set in the Bermuda Triangle, the story focuses on a documentary film crew that goes missing and the only trace of their disappearance comes when their film footage, chronicling their final terrifying days, is found.
"The Bermuda Triangle has always been an intriguing and mysterious setting,” said WWE Studios President Michael Luisi. “Bobby and Nathan's script puts a very unique spin on the found footage genre,” added Luisi.

Darby and Brookes previously penned SLAUGHTER, an homage to the Japanese cult horror genre which won the Horror Screenplay Competition at Slamdance in 2007.

Darby and Brookes are repped by Chris Sablan at Original Artists and Jonathan Hung at Hung Entertainment. Bradley Buchanan, VP of Business and Legal Affairs, and Richard Lowell, Senior Director of Development, negotiated on behalf of WWE Studios.
