Neveldine On Track For The Vatican Tapes
Directing the horror movie

Mark Neveldine

Usually when you think of director Mark Neveldine, his name is inextricably linked with that of filmmaking partner Brian Taylor, after the pair collaborated on the Crank films, Gamer and Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance. But this time, Neveldine is going it alone, switching to full on horror for The Vatican Tapes.

Variety reports that Neveldine will now handle the film, which was originally set up by Man On Wire’s James Marsh.

The film is not based around Pope Benedict’s voicemail message as he retires (rumoured to simply be him singing, “Auf Wiedersehen, dudes!” over and over), but instead concerns the recording of a botched exorcism that gets leaked. 

It all sounds a little The Devil Inside, but we’re hoping for better (or at least crazier) things from the former Crank man. It would appear that the Neveldine-Taylor partnership is ready for a trial separation, with both men now attached to separate projects – Brian Taylor is overseeing an adaptation of video game title Twisted Metal. Still, we can but hope they’ll reunite for a future joint outing.

Hell to the no!
I have no hope for this one- 'the vatican tapes?' sounds bloody awful. More

Probably a good idea for them to split up for a while and try something on their own. With two directors working on one film, their movies end up being a bit overcooked. Maybe this will help them calm down a bit and try to develop story and character better. More
