Mikael Hafstrom – who I thought did a pretty solid job on 1408 for Dimension Films – is set to direct Last Rite, a fact-based thriller scripted by Michael Petroni. Based on a nonfiction book by Matt Baglio, the film tells the story of a young man who joins a seminary and is soon recruited into the Vatican’s newly formed Exorcism School. There, he confronts the demonic and discovers his true faith by facing the devil. Exorcisms seem to be the new cool in Hollywood… someone call me when it’s done right.
