Director Mark Neveldine took to Twitter this evening to tell the world that his next film, The Vatican Tapes, is going to hit theaters on February 27, 2015. Lionsgate is handling the distribution.
Michael Peña, Academy Djimon Hounsou, Dougray Scott, Kathleen Robertson, Peter Andersson, Olivia Dudley, John Patrick Amedori, Cas Anvar and Alex Sparrow star. This is Neveldine’s first solo feature. He previously helmed the Crank films, Gamer and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance with Brian Taylor.
The Vatican Tapes follows the haunting tale of 27-year-old Angela Holmes, played by Dudley, an ordinary girl who begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close to her, causing serious injury and death. The local priest, Father Lozano, played by Pena examines Holmes and believes she is possessed, but when Vicar Imani, portrayed by Hounsou, and Cardinal Bruun, played by Andersson are called from the Vatican to exorcise the demon, it proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than they imagined.
The film currently faces no other horror competition that week. The Poltergeist remake will open two weeks before on February 13, 2015.
