Filmmaker Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister) has signed on to direct Beware the Night from a script he co-wrote with Paul Boardman. Screen Gems will produce the film and is currently in negotiations with Disney for the rights.
TheWrap describes the story which follows a New York police officer tasked with investigating demon possessions, exorcisms and werewolves after dark. Casting has yet to begin, although Mark Wahlberg was reportedly being eyed for the leading role.
In addition to Emily Rose, Derrickson directed 2008’s The Day the Earth Stood Still and penned the screenplay for the upcoming Devil’s Knot.
