Lionsgate announced last year that they are co-producing the supernatural thriller The Devil’s Light. James Hawes (“Penny Dreadful”) was in the director’s chair but that has now changed. The Last Exorcism’s Daniel Stamm is now listed as director, Bloody-Disgusting reports.

Written by Robert Zappia (Halloween H2O), The Devil’s Light tells the story of Sister Ann, a restless 25-year-old, who devoutly believes that performing exorcisms is her calling. But she is at odds with the institution’s traditions: sisters are not allowed to perform exorcisms, only priests. With the support of a mentor, a professor who senses her special gift, she is allowed to observe actual training sessions. Her desire to prove herself takes a personal turn when she meets one of the school’s most disturbed patients. During their harrowing encounters, Sister Ann comes face to face with a demonic force that infests the school and has mysterious ties to her own past. It is then that the power of evil and her own startling abilities are fully realized.”

Paul Brooks (The Haunting in Connecticut, White Noise), Jessica Malanaphy, Todd Jones, and Earl Richey Jones are producing. Executive Producers are Scott Niemeyer, David Brooks, and Brad Kessell.

Production is set to begin this spring.
