In 1989, emergency responders received a 9-1-1 call from Maria Rossi confessing that she had brutally killed three people. 20 years later, her daughter Isabella seeks to understand the truth about what happened that night. She travels to the Centrino Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Italy where her mother has been locked away to determine if her mother is mentally ill or demonically possessed. When she recruits two young exorcists to cure her mom using unconventional methods combining both science and religion, they come face-to-face with pure evil in the form of four powerful demons possessing Maria. Many have been possessed by one; only one has been possessed by many.

Shortly after the release of The Devil Inside, director William Brent Bell lined up two new projects. One called The Vatican at Warner Bros. Another at Sierra/Affinity.
The latter yielded the most mystery because – while it was revealed it was going to utilize the found footage technique – the title and plot were being kept under wraps. All that we knew was that it was going to apply found footage to a “classic” horror staple.
After The Devil Inside’s big box office debut last week, there was a question of whether or not the horror film could sustain that success in its second weekend. In short, no, it couldn’t. With a Mark Wahlberg film, Contraband, and Beauty and the Beast 3D making their debut, The Devil Inside took a bit of a tumble at the box office.
William Brent Bell and Matthew Peterman, of The Devil Inside, are quickly become hot commodities
They have set up a new horror film at Sierra/Affinity that is currently being known as The Untitled Bell/Peterman Project. The production outfit will finance and produce the film with Steven Schneider, Peterman and Morris Paulson.
This is in addition to another deal Bell and Peterman set up earlier this week. On Monday, the duo were attached to The Vatican at Warner Bros.
The Devil Inside, as a possible horror franchise, faces a dilemma. Does it move forward strictly based on its $34.5 million opening? Or, does it take caution and avoid sequel-itis given that it received an “F” Cinemascore? Obviously, the studio could do a sequel with the creators if they strived to do something better. Also, the film’s second weekend will likely dictate how everyone proceeds as well. But for right now, there is no rush, says Steven Schneider.
The Wrap spoke with the executive producer recently; you’ll find what he had to say after the jump.
Keeping his momentum going, director William Brent Bell has already lined up his next project in the wake of a succeessful opening weekend for The Devil Inside.
He will next direct The Vatican for Warner Bros. The studio picked up a pitch for the movie from writer David Cohen. Roy Lee (The Ring) will produce with a number of others including The Devil Inside’s co-writer Matt Peterman.
