Lionsgate’s ‘The Vatican Tapes’ Discovered By Doc Director

In a very smart and gusty move, Lionsgate and Lakeshore have tapped James Marsh, the director of the doc Man on Wire, to direct The Vatican Tapes, a supernatural thriller first announced here on Bloody Disgusting back in September. The story centers on a series of events that unfold after a tape gets leaked from the Vatican displaying an exorcism that goes wrong. Chris Borrelli wrote the screenplay based on a story by Borrelli and Chris Morgan. Gary Lucchesi (the Underworld franchise, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Pathology, The Midnight Meat Train), Tom Rosenberg, Chris Cowles and Morgan are producing.
