Lionsgate is developing Vatican supernatural thriller White Smoke with Jason Blum and Kevin McCormick on board to produce, Variety reports.
The studio has acquired a pitch from Jeff Richard and Mark Bianculli, who are writing the script “about a series of bizarre and haunting occurrences that grip the Vatican. A renowned neuroscientist is summoned by the inner circle of cardinals to find a logical explanation.”
Blum is producing through his Blumhouse Productions shingle, McCormick is producing via his Langley Park banner.
Lionsgate also has The Vatican in production. Paramount’s The Devil Inside was a Vatican-themed horror that performed quite well in January 2012.
