Ramirez and Munn joining Bana for paranormal thriller.
It has been confirmed that Édgar Ramírez (‘Zero Dark Thirty,’ ‘Wrath of the Titans’) and Olivia Munn (‘The Newsroom,’ ‘Magic Mike’) are to join Eric Bana (‘Deadfall,’ ‘Hanna’) on the cast of the paranormal police thriller ‘Beware The Night.’
With Scott Derrickson (‘Sinister,’ ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose,’ ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’) directing from a script he co-wrote with Paul Harris Boardman, ‘Beware the Night’ is the story of a New York cop who meets a renegade priest when he is pulled into a case which the priest convinces him, against the officer’s religious beliefs, is demonic related. Together they work to solve the case and combat the paranormal forces working against them.
“’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,” said producer Jerry Bruckheimer. “We’re excited to work with Clint 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.”
Production is slated to begin in the Bronx May 20th.
