Here’s a fun fact: Eric Bana made his name as a comedian in Australia before transitioning to the dramatic actor the rest of the world knows him as. You can thank Andrew Dominik‘s foresight to cast in him “Chopper” for that. And having proven his chops when it comes to moving the heart, Bana is now gonna try and scare the shit out of you with the upcoming “Deliver Us From Evil.”
The horror film, formerly known as “Beware the Night,” comes from Scott Derickson (“Sinister,” “Exorcism of Emily Rose“), co-stars Edgar Ramirez and Olivia Munn, and follows an Irish Catholic NYPD detective who, while working on a murder case, runs into a renegade priest who believes demonic elements may be in the mix. Spooky! “It’s going to be really out there,” Bana told us last summer. “It’s another kind of thriller genre mash-up. It’s kind of cop procedure thriller with psychological undertones, a great character at the center of it, but it’s going to be scary as hell.”
See for yourself on July 2nd. Watch below.
