Ciaran Hinds, Toby Jones and Alice Braga Join THE RITE

     May 3, 2010

Ciarán Hinds (HBO’s Rome), Toby Jones (Infamous), and Alice Braga (I Am Legend) have joined the cast of the upcoming supernatural thriller, The Rite.  Based on the book by Matt Baglio and directed by Mikael Hafstrom (1408) the story, which is based on true events, centers on “a disillusioned American seminary student who attends exorcism school at the Vatican and ultimately finds his faith through encounters with demonic forces.”  Screen Daily has no information on which roles each actor will be playing but we do know that they will be joining Sir Anthony Hopkins, who will play a priest who “is an expert in exorcisms and whose methods are not necessarily traditional.”   The Rite doesn’t have a release date yet, but I think it’s safe to assume that we can expect to see the film sometime next year.
