WWE Studios 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'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.

    @Heisenberg - Some wrestlers can actually act, not many but some. I'm trying to think of more then one wrestler but I can only think of The Rock right now, some think he can't but I think he has proving that he can be more then a action hero. The Game Plan, The Run Down, Be Cool.

    They couldn't have picked a better studio. This is their way of telling us how blatantly bad this movie will be.

    WWE movies are cheesy and not critically acclaimed but they are still enjoyable if you like watching a bad movie here and there.

    @Heisenberg - I agree, but I think they could make decent films if they find better writers. The Marine could have actually been good if they didn't have something exploding every five seconds, and I actually saw See No Evil in the movies (face palm) never again.

    the found footage genre has been done to death, especially with THE DEVIL INSIDE, but I am actually very interested in seeing this.
