Deliver Us From Evil
The horror genre is continually trying to find new ways to scare audiences, and often that means twisting conventions into new shapes. So the idea of a fright flick in the guise of a cop movie is at least a pretty interesting one, even if the result still kinda looks like your usual exorcism/demon/creature movie.

Deliver Us From Evil
Here's a fun fact: Eric Bana made his name as a comedian in Australia before transitioning to the dramatic actor the rest of the world knows him as. You can thank Andrew Dominik's foresight to cast in him "Chopper" for that. And having proven his chops when it comes to moving the heart, Bana is now gonna try and scare the shit out of you with the upcoming "Deliver Us From Evil."

Despite the apex of the genre occurring forty years ago, the past few years has seen an increase in exorcism films: “The Rite,” “The Devil Inside,” and two at-bats for “The Last Exorcism” among others. And in case you forgot, last fall it was reported that “Sinister” director Scott Derrickson was heading back to the exorcism well (he wrote and directed 2005’s “The Exorcism Of Emily Rose”) with “Beware The Night” and he’s lined up a nifty cast to join Eric Bana.

Movies are a funny thing, sometimes developing through some oddball incarnations before finally firming up into something realistic. And so it goes for "Hands Of Stone," a boxing biopic that in 2010 had Gael Garcia Bernal and Al Pacino attached with Venezuelan helmer Jonathan Jakubowicz set to direct. That didn't happen, then last spring the movie cropped up again, only this time with the random assortment of R&B star Usher, "True Blood" dude Ryan Kwanten and Michelle Rodriguez, with Robert De Niro replacing Pacino. Well, part of that is still right.

Oh hey, Richard Kelly, remember him? He's the director who came out of the gate with promise after "Donnie Darko, and then squandered that goodwill with the bellyflop that was "Southland Tales" and then the horror movie no one saw called "The Box." For the past few years he's been trying to get "Corpus Christi" off the ground, and in fact, just over a year ago, he was hoping to pull together the financing to shoot it last summer. Obviously that didn't happen but a couple fellow genre specialists are helping him to get the movie rolling.

It seems as though we’ve been waiting forever (a decade to be exact) for Joe Carnahan to deliver on the promise set forth with 2002’s “Narc.” It’s not that the two films he’s directed since (“Smokin’ Aces,” “The A-Team”) were necessarily bad, but rather that Carnahan seemed to demonstrate with “Narc” that he was capable of much, much more. Of course, the director also spent a fair amount of time developing “Mission: Impossible III,” which was later flipped to J.J. Abrams. It was an unpleasant learning experience Carnahan openly tells Playlist he quit before he could be fired. Although he says learned a lot from the ordeal and has no regrets, though it has possibly compelled the director to play things a little safer since.

So much Khan drama, and it turns out Benicio Del Toro isn't in the damn thing, but J.J. Abrams continues to search for his villain for "Star Trek 2" (maybe it's like, Khan's cousin?!) and two names are rising up.
