Black Mirror-director James Hawes to tackle thriller The Devil's Light

The film, written by Robert Zappia, is set for production in the first half of 2020

Published: 31st October 2019

Lionsgate is co-producing the supernatural thriller The Devil's Light with Gold Circle, which previously produced the My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Pitch Perfect franchises.

The film, to be directed by James Hawes (Black Mirror, Penny Dreadful) and written by Robert Zappia, is set for production in the first half of 2020. There's no word on the casting for The Devil's Light.

The plot follows protagonist Sister Ann, who believes performing exorcisms is her calling, but is at odds with an exorcism school's rules. She eventually comes face to face with a demonic force that infests the school and has mysterious ties to her own past.

British director Hawes helmed the pilot and two other episodes of TBS' Snowpiercer adaptation and previously directed episodes of TNT's The Alienist, Nat Geo's Genius, and five episodes of the BBC's Doctor Who, including the 2006 Christmas special that marked David Tennant's first full appearance as the titular Time Lord.
