We already had a little chat about Scott Derrickson
‘s upcoming paranormal thriller Beware The Night, remember
? Today we’re here to report that Olivia Munn
, Edgar Ramirez
and (previously rumored) Eric Bana
are officially on board for the project which is based on Ralph Sarchie
and Lisa Collier Cool
’s book of the same name.
At this moment we know that Derrickson will direct the picture from a screenplay he and Paul Harris Boardman
adapted and that the movie will revolve around:
…a New York cop who meets a renegade priest when he is pulled into a case which the priest convinces him, against the officer’s religious beliefs, is demonic related. Together they work to solve the case and combat the paranormal forces working against them.
As for the above mentioned cast, Eric Bana
is set to play an Irish Catholic cop, Olivia Munn
will star as his wife, while Edgar Ramirez
will play the priest.
Beware the Night
again teams Derrickson and Boardman with Screen Gems
where their first film, 2005’s hit The Exorcism of Emily Rose
, was made and distributed.
Production of the project is slated to begin in the Bronx on May 20th, which means that we’ll soon have more updates to share.
Make sure you stay tuned!
