by Thomas Tuna

“This is just the beginning.”

A brief demon-filled clip this week dropped to tease The Pope’s Exorcist, a new supernatural thriller from Screen Gems. Check out the Twitter post on this page.

The horror pic–slated to hit the big screen April 14–is based on the real-life trials of Fr. Gabriele Amorth, played by Oscar-winner Russell Crowe. The R-rated feature (for violent content, language and sexual references) is directed by Julius Avery from a screenplay by Evan Spiliotopoulos.

Joining Crowe in the cast are Ralph Ineson (as the voice of the demon), Alex Essoe, Daniel Zovatto, Franco Nero, Laurel Marsden, Cornell S. John and Peter DeSouza-Feighoney.

The film relates the tribulations of Fr. Amorth, the renowned Italian priest who reportedly performed more than 100,000 exorcisms for the Vatican. The priest’s bestselling memoirs–An Exorcist Tells His Story and An Exorcist: More Stories–inspired the screenplay.
