William Brent Bell Off To The Vatican
Thriller time for Devil Inside director

William Brent Bell Off To The Vatican

Given that he’s just helped to guide a $1 million budgeted found footage horror movie (The Devil Inside) to strong box office success in the States, director William Brent Bell is probably not very surprised to be fielding plenty of job offers right now. And he’s already locked in one deal, with Warner Bros. hiring him to direct conspiracy thriller The Vatican.

While Devil Inside was a horror with religious overtones, Vatican will apparently whack together conspiracy theories with the papal tradition. But there will be some similarities, with the new movie including some found footage elements alongside more traditional plot lines.

Not much else is known about the movie other than the fact that writer David Cohen pitched it to the studio. One of his earlier scripts, No One Lives, is already chugging its way through post-production with Luke Evans in the lead. He also landed on the 2011 Black List with Frankenstein-inspired tale Subject Zero, which sees a scientist developing a new drug to bring his son back to life, only to unleash a zombie epidemic on the world. We doubt there will be many flesh-eating beasties rampaging through the Pope’s gaff in Vatican, but we live in hope…
