Paul Bettany Plays Angelic Legion

Paul Bettany is set to star in the Screen Gems thriller “Legion” reports Variety.

The story follows what happens when God loses faith in humanity and sends his legion of angels to wipe out the human race for the second time.

Mankind’s only hope lies in a group of misfits holed up in a diner in the desert who are aided by the archangel Michael (Bettany).

Scott Stewart will make his feature directorial debut on the project and co-wrote the script with Peter Schink. Production begins in New Mexico in March.
