Edgar Ramirez and Olivia Munn Join Eric Bana in Horror Thriller BEWARE THE NIGHT

     April 9, 2013


Edgar Ramirez (Zero Dark Thirty), and Olivia Munn (Magic Mike) have signed on to join Eric Bana in Screen Gems’ upcoming horror-thriller Beware The Night.  The film, being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, centers around a police officer working on a case that deals with demonic possession and other paranormal occurrences.  Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose helmer Scott Derrickson signed on to direct last fall, and he will be using a script he co-wrote alongside with Emily Rose partner Paul Boardman.  If well-received, the studio is said to be aiming for a franchise.  Hit the jump for more details.

Bana can be seen next on the thriller Close Circuit in theaters August 28th.  His last project was the crime-drama Deadfall, also starring Olivia Wilde.  Ramirez was most recently seen in the critically acclaimed Zero Dark Thirty and has a couple other projects lined up, including Hands of Stone, where he will be playing legendary boxer Roberto Duran.  Munn, for her part, has been busy filming episodes of HBO’s The Newsroom and was last seen in the Steven Soderbergh’s summer hit Magic Mike.
