Eric Bana and Olivia Munn Fight Demons in Beware the Night

Eric Bana

Although I can’t say that I know anyone who is presently longing for more exorcism movies, that isn’t stopping the greasy Hollywood machine from farting another one into theaters. I personally gave up on this subgenre long ago, though it would appear someone keeps watching these things. Be sure to raise your hand so everyone can see who to blame.

The folks at Screen Gems are currently putting together the exorcism flick “Beware the Night” with Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, and Olivia Munn. Scott Derrickson, the man responsible for both “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” and “Hellraiser: Inferno”, is bringing the project to the big screen. He reportedly co-wrote the movie with Paul Harris Boardman.

Eric Bana will portray an Irish Catholic cop who joins forces with a priest to battle the forces of evil. Ramirez will play the man of the cloth while Munn will portray the cop’s wife. Shooting is currently slated to being in New York this May.

Since Jerry Bruckheimer Films is producing “Beware the Night,” the man himself decided to drop some knowledge about the upcoming project. Although the premise doesn’t sound entirely awful, it just makes me pine for a proper Harry D’Amour movie.

Here’s what Bruckheimer had to say:

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.

Even if “Beware the Night” turns out to be damn-near unwatchable, at least moviegoers will be able to stare at Olivia Munn for 90 minutes. There are worse things in life, I suppose.
