Possession was only the beginning.
Russell Crowe returns to the big screen in Sony’s upcoming horror film, The Pope’s Exorcist, and today we got our first look at the film with the release of its first official trailer – which you can check out below.
Inspired by the actual files of Father Gabriele Amorth, Chief Exorcist of the Vatican, The Pope’s Exorcist follows Amorth as he investigates a young boy’s terrifying possession and ends up uncovering a centuries-old conspiracy the Vatican has desperately tried to keep hidden.
Starring alongside Crowe in the film are Franco Nero (Django, John Wick: Chapter 2), Laurel Marsden (Ms. Marvel), Cornell S. John (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald), Peter DeSouza-Feighoney, Alex Essoe (Doctor Sleep) and Daniel Zovatto.
Overlord director Julius Avery helms the release which was written by Michael Petroni (The Book Thief) and Evan Spiliotopolous (Snake Eyes, Beauty and the Beast).
The film has been rated R for “Violent content, language, sexual references, and some nudity.”
The Pope’s Exorcist is set to arrive in theatres on April 14th, 2023.
