Xavier Gens Teaming With CONJURING Writers For THE CRUCIFIXION

‘Frontier(s)’ director to helm supernatural thriller…

French filmmaker Xavier Gens (‘The Divide,’ ‘Hitman’) has been tapped to take the helm of ‘The Crucifixion,’ a “based on true events” thriller featuring a script by ‘The Conjuring’ scribes Chad and Carey Hayes.

The supernatural tale revolves around a priest who is jailed for the murder of a nun on whom he was performing an exorcism – leading to an investigative journalist striving to determine whether he in fact murdered a mentally ill person, or if he lost the battle with a demonic presence.

Peter Safran, who was behind ‘The Conjuring’ and ‘Annabelle,’ is on board to produce alongside Lotus Entertainment’s Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, DJ Gugenheim and Ara Keshishian.
