Eric Bana Will Beware The Night
With Edgar Ramirez & Olivia Munn

Confirming what was first touted back in November, Eric Bana has now locked the lead role in Scott Derrickson’s paranormal police thriller Beware The Night. But that’s not all, because Edgar Ramirez and Olivia Munn are also aboard.

Derrickson wrote the script with regular collaborator (and Exorcism Of Emily Rose co-writer) Paul Boardman. The story finds an Irish Catholic cop (Bana) discovering a world he knew nothing about when his latest case brings him into contact with a renegade priest (Ramirez). Despite his initial reluctance, the priest convinces our hero that there is a demonic element to the crime and they team up to battle evil forces. Munn is on board to play Bana’s wife, who has her own connection to the case.

Jerry Bruckheimer’s on board to produce via his company, and he seems pleased that it’s finally going ahead after spending a few years in limbo at Disney. “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,” Bruckheimer says in a statement.

“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.”

Derrickson, who last made Sinister, is set to start the cameras rolling on May 20 in New York.
