Mark Neveldine is an action guy. Actually, he’s one of the best and most distinctive action guys working in Hollywood, with a frenetic but lucid style heavy on practical effects and dark humor, as anyone who’s seen films like Crank and Gamer can attest. When I talked to him over the phone yesterday, he said he was “really close” to figuring out his next directing gig, one he promised would “definitely be an in-camera action film.”

If you thought movies like The Devil Inside and Deliver Us From Evil had effectively ended the renewed trend of exorcism horror flicks, think again. It’s Michael Peña’s turn to get in on the demonic horror genre in the trailer for The Vatican Tapes, in which the actor plays what Djimon Hounsou (looking pretty sharp in that priest garb) describes as a “warrior for God.” It basically looks like The Devil Inside meets Deliver Us From Evil, but I get the feeling it’s not combining the best of both films.
