While Russell Crowe recently appeared on movie screens as the comic book equivalent of Zeus, soon the actor will be seen in a completely different role.
The first picture from the production of “The Pope’s Exorcist,” telling the story of one of the most famous exorcists, Gabriele Amorth, portrayed on screen by the “Galdiator” star, has just been surfaced online.
The achievements of Father Gabriele Amorth, the priest who died in 2016 and was said to have performed more than a hundred thousands exorcisms commissioned by the Vatican during his ministry, has been the subject of many publications over the years.
The legendary exorcist was discussed, for example, by William Friedkin, the director of “The Exorcist,” in a documentary film made several years ago, “The Devil and Father Amorth.”
This production was based on a book written by Gabriele Amorth, which in Poland was published under the title “Confessions of an Exorcist.”
Julius Avery, the creator of the well-received 2018 second-war action horror film “Operation Overlord,” took the direction. The script was written by: Evan Spiliotopulos (“Sanctuary”), R. Dean McCreary and Chester Hastings.
