Just a quick update on Lakeshore’s (long-planned) movie The Vatican Tapes
! We’ve just learned that Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
helmer Mark Neveldine
is now set to direct the whole thing. In other words – the project is definitely coming, but when exactly – we have no idea. Still, the most important thing in this moment is that folks from Lakeshore Entertainment
are quite serious about the movie!
First announced in 2009, The Vatican Tapes
story comes from Chris Borrelli
who wrote the script based on a story by Borrelli and Chris Morgan
. Back then Man on a Wire
helmer James Marsh
was attached to direct it.
reports that Neveldine is on board to finally bring this supernatural story to a big screen. In case you’re not so familiar with the plot, the movie will center on a series of events that unfold after a tape gets leaked from the Vatican, displaying an exorcism that goes wrong.
Said to be in the vein of The Exorcist
and Rosemary’s Baby
, The Vatican Tapes
also marks Neveldine’s first solo directing gig.
Stay tuned for more updates!
