Paramount Finds ‘Sanctuary’ In Possession Tale

In his first deal since leaving WB, Joel Silver’s Silver Pictures has set up the supernatural-action script Sanctuary at Paramount Pictures, reports Deadline.

Scripted by Alan Trezza, “Sanctuary focuses on a young woman who is possessed by a powerful demonic force. She seeks refuge within The Sanctuary, a Vatican-run secret organization that teaches the possessed to channel their inner demon and use its power as a weapon against evil.

The flavor is a cross between Wanted and Blade.
