“Community” star Joel McHale, pictured, is in final negotiations to join Eric Bana in Beware the Night, Screen Gems’ Jerry Bruckheimer-produced supernatural thriller, Heat Vision reports.
Sean Harris, who appeared in Prometheus, is also joining the cast.
Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister) is directing the project, which “centers around a New York street cop (Bana) who has put his faith in religion behind him but now finds himself targeted by the Devil in the form of possessed soldier (Harris).”
McHale is veering from his usual comedic roles and taking a dramatic turn, playing Bana’s partner, an experienced and tough cop. Edgar Ramirez is already on board as a Jesuit priest, while Olivia Munn is playing the cop’s wife.
Derrickson wrote the script with Paul Harris Boardman. Screen Gems is to release January 16, 2015.
