After his unexpected successful film â€œThe Devil Insideâ€ this past weekend, Warner Brothers Pictures signed the director to helm â€œThe Vatican.â€
Unlike the exorcism film, â€œThe Vaticanâ€ will be a conspiracy thriller to be written by David Cohen. Warner Brothers has fast tracked the project and it will be a hybrid film that uses found footages similar to â€œThe Devil Inside.â€
Cohen wrote the scripts of â€œSubject Zeroâ€ and â€œNo One Lives.â€ â€œThe Devil Insideâ€ script was written by Bell and Matthew Peterman (“Stay Alive”).
Bell also previously directed 2006â€™s â€œStay Aliveâ€ and 1997â€™s â€œSparkle and Charm.â€
Despite very poor critic reviews and receiving an â€œFâ€ from CinemaScore audiences, â€œThe Devil Insideâ€ was the top grossing film this weekend with $34.5 million for a $1 million budgeted film.
