Mikael Hafstrom to Direct Last Rite


Mikael Hafstrom (1408) is set to direct Last Rite, a fact-based thriller written by Michael Petroni, reports Variety.

Based on a nonfiction book by Matt Baglio, the film tells the story of a young man who joins a seminary and is soon recruited into the Vatican’s newly formed Exorcism School. There, he confronts the demonic and discovers his true faith by facing the devil.

Contrafilm’s Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson will produce with Christy Fletcher.
