Paramount Pictures has given the green light to Joel Silver‘s first project since his exit from Warner Brothers earlier this year, Described as a supernatural thriller, Sanctuary is about a young woman, possessed by demonic forces.
“[The woman] seeks refuge within The Sanctuary, a Vatican-run secret organization that teaches the possessed to channel their inner demon and use its power as a weapon against evil. The flavor is a cross between Wanted and Blade.”
Alan Trezza (Don’t worry, I’ve never heard of him either,) wrote the script, and Andrew Rona will co-produce with Silver while Alex Heineman takes the reins as executive producer. There’s no word on who will direct, most likely some up and coming horror director.
