‘The Pope’s Exorcist’ – First Footage from Rated “R” Horror Movie With Russell Crowe




The Pope's Exorcist

The Pope’s Exorcist trailer will hit the internet tomorrow, February 22.

Julius Avery, the director of 2018’s Overlord, is heading back into the horror genre with The Pope’s Exorcist this coming April, and Fandango has debuted first-look footage today.

From Sony’s Screen Gems, The Pope’s Exorcist is based on real-life exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth, “the legendary Italian priest who performed over 100,000 exorcisms for the Vatican.” Evan Spiliotopoulos wrote the current draft with revisions by Chuck MacLean, based on Michael Petroni-revised original drafts by Chester Hastings and R. Dean McCreary.

Doug Belgrad of 2.0 Entertainment will produce with Michael Patrick Kaczmarek of Jesus & Mary, Jeff Katz of Worldwide Katz, and Loyola Productions’ Eddie Siebert. The Exorcist director William Friedkin told Father Gabriele Amorth’s story in the recent documentary The Devil and Father Amorth, which you can find on various VOD outlets. Father Gabriele Amorth passed away back in 2016 at the age of 91.

Ralph Ineson (The Witch, The Green Knight) has joined Russell Crowe in the film. Ineson has been cast as the voice of the demon. The Pope’s Exorcist is rated “R” for… “Violent content, language, sexual references, and some nudity.”

Franco Nero (Django, John Wick: Chapter 2) recently joined the cast as the titular pope, starring alongside Russell Crowe as real-life exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth. Laurel Marsden (Ms. Marvel), Cornell S. John (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald), Peter DeSouza-Feighoney, Alex Essoe (Doctor Sleep), and Daniel Zovatto (It Follows) also star.
