Mark Neveldine to Direct The Vatican Tapes


It has been over three years since we’ve heard of any developments on The Vatican Tapes. Said to be in the vein of The Exorcist and Rosemary’s Baby, the film was originally going to be directed by James Marsh (Man on a Wire). Lakeshore has found a new helmer to take on the project, however.

According to Variety, Mark Neveldine has been brought aboard. Neveldine is going solo in the director’s chair this time after co-directing the “Crank” films, Gamer and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance with Brian Taylor.

The story centers on a series of events that unfold after a tape gets leaked from the Vatican displaying an exorcism that goes wrong. Christopher Borrelli scripted the film.
