REC is quite possibly the scariest found footage horror film out there, and now one of the director's of the film is bringing a new terror to audiences...
...Via Variety, Paco Plaza (REC, Netflix's Veronica), is attached to write and direct a new series inspired by the graphic novella, Roman Ritual, from Spain's El Torres, which follows a pope who is possessed by the devil!
In Roman Ritual:
"The Pope is possessed, and the Vatican has no choice but to call in exiled Father Salvador Trinidad to save the pontiff. With one exorcism after another failing, however, the Vatican is advancing on the election of a new Pope, unleashing a ferocious power struggle. Trinidad’s challenge is not only to cast out the Pope’s demon, which is currently slaying members of the Curia, but also to penetrate an elaborate conspiracy of interests and crimes, covered up to safeguard the Catholic Church and the entangled prominent members of the Pontifical curia."
The film is being produced by Enrique López Lavigne (28 Weeks Later), Plaza, Suárez Chialvo and Pablo Cruz.
The series is currently in development through El Estudio.
