Mark Neveldine (Crank, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance) is going solo for the first time in his feature directorial career as his frequent directorial partner, Brian Taylor, is sitting this one out. The movie is The Vatican Tapes, a PG-13 thriller Lionsgate has slated for a May 22 release.

The story follows the haunting tale of 27-year-old Angela Holmes (Olivia Dudley) an ordinary girl who begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close to her, causing serious injury and death. The local priest, Father Lozano (Michael Peña), examines Holmes and believes she is possessed, but when Vicar Imani (Djimon Hounsou) and Cardinal Bruun (Peter Andersson) are called from the Vatican to exorcise the demon, it proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than they imagined.
