“FRONTIER(S)” and “CONJURING” Filmmakers Team on “THE CRUCIFIXION”News Samuel Zimmerman
Xavier Gens, of mad French splattershow FRONTIER(S), will team with the co-writing team on last summer’s hit haunter THE CONJURING for the exorcism-themed THE CRUCIFIXION.
With pre-sales on THE CRUCIFIXION underway at the currently running American Film Market in Los Angeles, comes the announcement that Gens, who made a splash in THE ABCs OF DEATH with the grotesque “X is for XXL” will direct this tale of “an investigative journalist who probes the case of a priest who allegedly murdered a nun during an exorcism.”
THE CRUCIFIXION was written by CONJURING writers Chad and Carey Hayes (HOUSE OF WAX 2005), who will produce with ANNABELLE and CONJURING producer Peter Safran. [Screen Daily]
