CRANK Co-Director Mark Neveldine to Make Solo Debut with Thriller THE VATICAN TAPES

     February 12, 2013


One half of the Neveldine/Taylor directing duo is set to make his solo debut.  Variety reports that director Mark Neveldine will helm the thriller The Vatican Tapes sans his usual collaborator Brian Taylor.  The two made a name for themselves with the intense 2006 thriller Crank and continued their signature hyper-stylized camerawork on the 2009 sequel Crank: High Voltage and the actioner Gamer.  Most recently the two helmed Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, but it appears that they’re ready to see how they fare as solo artists.  Neveldine isn’t the only one striking out on his own, as Taylor is set to write and direct a feature film adaptation of the video game Twisted Metal.

The Vatican Tapes has been in development for a number of years.  The supernatural thriller centers on a series of events that unfold after a tape gets leaked from the Vatican displaying an exorcism that goes wrong.  Though the premise sounds all too familiar given the bevy of found footag/exorcism/found footage-exorcism horror films that we’ve seen over the past few years, Neveldine is sure to bring an interesting visual approach to the pic.
