Edgar Ramirez, Eric Bana, and Olivia Munn have reportedly signed on to star in a new paranormal thriller from director Scott Derrickson and producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
The film, Beware the Night, follows a New York Irish Catholic police officer (Bana) as he investigate cases of demon possessions, exorcisms, and werewolves. The officer meets a priest (Ramirez) who begins helping with the investigation. Munn will play Bana’s wife.
Bruckheimer recently spoke to Deadline:
“‘Beware The Night’ is a project we’ve been developing for many years, confident that a story which combines the paranormal with a gritty New York City police story is both original and strongly appealing to audiences,” Bruckheimer said. “We’re excited to work with Culpepper and his team at Screen Gems, and director Scott Derrickson, who has emerged as a uniquely talented filmmaker with the ability to both entertain and terrify audiences in equal measure. We’re also thrilled to have Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, and Olivia Munn, three really fine actors whose strongly defined roles in ‘Beware The Night’ will allow them to give full range to their skills.
Though Mark Wahlberg was rumored to have been offered the lead, but declined and Bana was cast.
Shooting it set to begin in the Bronx in May.
