And very scary...
In an interview with Shock Till You Drop, Eric Bana spoke about director Scott Derrickson's (Sinister) Beware the Night, an adaptation of Ralph Sarchie and Lisa Collier Cool's "true" paranormal story of the same name about Sarchie's side job.
Here's a synopsis: When he's not at the 46th Precinct in the south Bronx, Sarchie investigates demonic possessions. In the film version, Eric Bana portrays the cop character and is recruited by a renegade priest (Edgar Ramirez) to help him battle malicious paranormal forces.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer said in April: "Beware the Night is a project we've been developing for many years, confident that a story which combines the paranormal with a gritty New York City police story is both original and strongly appealing to audiences."
When asked about the film during promotion of Closed Circuit, Bana said: "I think it hopefully will be one of the most unique in that genre. I think we've just finished making something that is unlike anything I've seen before. It's very complex and I think it's gonna be very scary, and it was an amazing character. You know, I think Scott's handle on the genre, I mean, I think he's an amazing filmmaker and I feel very confident we've got something interesting in the can."
He said that the scares include both jump scares and the more disturbing kind that could keep you up at night. The film co-stars Olivia Munn and Joel McHale. It will be released on January 16, 2015.
