Jerry Bruckheimer has stepped in as producer on the upcoming Beware the Night, Variety reports. Sinister director Scott Derrickson is still attached to helm with Eric Bana in talks to star. Derrickson recently rewrote the screenplay, based on Ralph Sarchie and Lisa Collier Cool's paranormal thriller. Published in 2001, the book is officially described as follows:

A sixteen-year NYPD veteran, Ralph Sarchie works out of the 46th Precinct in New York's south Bronx. But it is his other job that he calls "the Work": investigating cases of demonic possession and assisting in the exorcisms of humanity's most ancient--and most dangerous--foes. Now he discloses for the first time his investigation into incredible true crimes an inhuman evil that were never explained, solved, or understood except by Sarchie and his partner. Schooled in the rituals of exorcism, and an eyewitness to the reality of demonic possession, Ralph Sarchie has documented a riveting chronicle of the inexplicable that gives a new shape to the shadows in the dark.

In Beware the Night, he takes readers into the very hierarchy of a hell on earth to expose the grisly rituals of a Palo Mayombe priest; a young girl whose innocence is violated by an incubus; a home invaded by the malevolent spirit of a supposedly murdered ninteenth-century bride; the dark side of a couple who were literally, the neighbors from hell; and more. Ralph Sarchie's NYPD revelations are a powerful and disturbing documented link between the true-crime realities of life and the blood-chilling ice-grip of a supernatural terror.


Most recently, Bruckheimer produced Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and is currently working on a re-teaming with that franchise's Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp with The Lone Ranger.

Bana, meanwhile, recently starred in Hanna and can next be seen in the terrorism thriller Closed Circuit, set for release on August 28, 2013.
