Producer Ross Katz ("Lost in Translation," "Marie Antoinette") has signed on to direct the supernatural thriller "The Unholy" for Gold Circle.

Joseph Fiennes ("Camelot") and Morena Baccarin ("Homeland") are attached to star in a story that follows a group of 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 them.

The film is based on an original idea by "[REC]" Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza ([REC]), and scripted by E.L. Katz. Paul Brooks is producing, and shooting aims to kick off this spring.
