Morena Baccarin is probably best known right now for her role in the stunning TV series Homeland, but the actress has also appeared in TV series’ V, Heartland, Firefly and Stargate SG-1. She also appeared in Joss Whedon’s Serenity. Joseph Fiennes has most recently be seen in American Horror Story: Asylum, and has previously appeared in Camelot, Flash Forward, plus a number of films including Shakespeare in Love, The Escapist and Enemy at the Gates.
Both have now signed on to star in a new supernatural horror directed by Ross Katz. Written by E.L Katz, The Unholy is based on an original idea by (Rec) creators Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero. The film is expected to be sold at the European Film Market in Berlin which begins this week.
Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks and Scott Niemeyer are producing. Gold Circle’s Guy Danella is executive producing alongside with Adrian Guerra, Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza.
Inspired by actual scientific research that suggests evil may live within our very own genetic code, The Unholy follows a group of cutting edge scientists who believe they can link evil to a specific human gene. When they are recruited by the Vatican to spearhead a new global initiative to examine candidates for official exorcisms, supernatural forces threaten both faith and science in a battle of good versus evil.
