Now playing in theaters is Scott Derrickson’s new demonic police thriller, Deliver Us From Evil. The Jerry Bruckheimer produced chiller, starring Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Joel McHale and Olivia Munn tells a fictionalized version of real-world NYPD Sergeant Ralph Sarchie’s (Bana) lifelong struggle with evil, both manmade and supernatural. The surprisingly thoughtful film mixes elements of Serpico and The Exorcist to create a gritty, violent drama with flourishes of the grotesque and moments of real emotional sincerity.
Recently, Collider sat down with producer Jerry Bruckheimer to discuss the film. During the conversation, he told us what he looks for in a potential project, the how and why of Deliver Us From Evil and what scares him. He also gave us quick updates on what to expect from several of his upcoming sequels including Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (which he says will be more of a straight pirates movie this time), Bad Boys III, National Treasure 3, and more.
