Lionsgate Boards Supernatural Thriller The Devil’s Light

-

Lionsgate announced today the studio will co-produce the supernatural thriller The Devil’s Light with Gold Circle and will distribute the film in North America, UK and Latin America. Lionsgate International will handle international sales and launch the film at AFM.

The film will be directed by James Hawes (Black Mirror, Penny Dreadful), written by Robert Zappia (Halloween H20: 20 Years Later) and produced by Paul Brooks (Pitch Perfect franchise, The Haunting in Connecticut, White Noise), Jessica Malanaphy, Todd Jones and Earl Richey Jones. The executive producers are Scott Niemeyer, David Brooks and Brad Kessell

With reports of demonic possessions reaching unprecedented numbers globally, the Vatican opens schools for exorcisms in six countries including the United States. The Devil’s Light tells the story of Sister Ann, a restless 25 year old, who devoutly believes that performing exorcisms is her calling. But she is at odds with the institution’s traditions: sisters are not allowed to perform exorcisms, only priests. With the support of a mentor, a professor who senses her special gift, she is allowed to observe actual training sessions. Her desire to prove herself takes a personal turn when she meets one of the school’s most disturbed patients. During their harrowing encounters, Sister Ann comes face to face with a demonic force that infests the school and has mysterious ties to her own past. It is then that the power of evil and her own startling abilities are fully realized.

The film will begin production in the first half of 2020. Meredith Wieck and Eda Kowan will oversee the production on behalf of Lionsgate.

Lionsgate President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions Jason Constantine negotiated the deal for the studio to acquire the rights along with Eda Kowan, Executive Vice President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions.
