Michael Peña, Djimon Hounsou to topline “Vatican Tapes” thriller

PanARMENIAN.Net - Michael Peña and Djimon Hounsou will attempt their first exorcism when Lionsgate's "The Vatican Tapes" starts filming next month, TheWrap said.

Dougray Scott ("My Week With Marilyn"), Kathleen Robertson ("Boss"), Peter Andersson ("The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"), Olivia Dudley (“CSI: Miami”), John Patrick Amedon ("The Last Stand") and Russian actor Alex Sparrow have also joined the ensemble cast for the upcoming thriller, which begins principle photography in July, Lionsgate and partner Lakeshore Entertainment announced.

The film, directed by Neveldine ("Crank"), follows a 27-year-old woman (Dudley) who begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close to her, causing serious injury and death. A local priest (Peña) believes she is possessed, but when Vicar Imani (Hounsou) and Cardinal Bruun (Anderson) are called from the Vatican to exorcise the demon, it proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than they imagined.

"Fast & Furious 6" writer Chris Morgan developed the story with Christopher Borrelli, who wrote the screenplay.

Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will producer, along with Chris Cowles.
