Ross Katz is set to direct Joseph Fiennes, pictured above, and Morena Baccarin (“V,” “Homeland), pictured below, in Gold Circle Entertainment’s supernatural thriller The Unholy, reports THR.
Katz will direct from a script written by Pop Skull‘s E.L. Katz, based on an original idea by Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza (creators of the [REC] franchise).
“Inspired by actual scientific research that suggests evil may live within our very own genetic code, The Unholy follows a group of cutting edge scientists who believe they can link evil to a specific human gene. When they are recruited by the Vatican to spearhead a new global initiative to examine candidates for official exorcisms, supernatural forces threaten both faith and science in a battle of good versus evil.“
Good Universe will shop the project to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin, which gets underway later this week. Principal photography is set to start in the spring.
Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks and Scott Niemeyer are producing. Gold Circle’s Guy Danella is executive producing alongside with Adrian Guerra, Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza.
