Russell Crowe Starring In A New Supernatural Horror Thriller THE POPE’S EXORCIST


Russell Crowe is starring in a new supernatural horror thriller titled The Pope’s Exorcist, which is being helmed by Julius Avery, the director of that crazy WWII monster film, Overlord. Production on the movie will start in September in Ireland.

Crowe will take on the role of real-life figure Father Gabriele Amorth, “a priest who acted as a chief exorcist of the Vatican and who performed more than 100,000 exorcisms in his lifetime.” He passed away back in 2016 at the age of 91. Amorth wrote two memoirs titled An Exorcist Tells His Story, and An Exorcist: More Stories, which detailed his “experiences battling demons that had clutched people in their evil.”

Avery said in a statement: “It’s been a goal of mine to work with Russell. To collaborate with him on the amazing Pope’s Exorcist is truly a dream come true.”

Screen Gems is producing the horror movie and they previously got the life rights to the chief exorcist, which also included rights to Amorth’s two internationally best-selling books. Those books are loaded with detailed accounts of his exorcism adventures all over the world.
