Warner Bros. PIctures has noted the success of Paramount’s The Devil Inside and has tapped director William Brent Bell to direct The Vatican, a pitch for a conspiracy driven thriller to be scripted by David Cohen, reports Deadline.
The Vatican, a sale that was conducted right before the holidays, will be fast tracked by Warner Bros and is described as a hybrid that uses some found footage techniques like The Devil Inside did. Cohen wrote Subject Zero, a script on last year’s Black Script, and No One Lives, which is in post production, was directed by Ryuhei Kitamura and stars Luke Evans.
The Vatican will be produced by Roy Lee, Lawrence Grey and John Middleton, and Bell’s producing partner Matt Peterman. Peterman wrote The Devil Inside with Bell, and produced that horror hit with Morris Paulson. Despite receiving an F from CinemaScore, the low budget The Devil Inside grossed $34.5 million on an opening weekend that is usually dominated by holiday holdovers.
