New Movie About the Vatican Sure to Thrill Anti-Catholics

Hollywood will be making a movie about The Vatican. What could go wrong?

And it’s even worse than you think.

Warner Bros is making a movie called The Vatican, and it’s reportedly some kind of horror/conspiracy movie. Hmmm ... a movie that says the Church is up to something nefarious? Well, a movie like that has never been made, right?

But wait. It gets even worse. The director of the movie Devil Inside is directing The Vatican. Here’s the poster for that movie:

Yup. That’s a possessed nun with dollar signs in her eyes.

The Devil Inside movie opened up with a saying on screen: “The Vatican does not approve this film.” Something tells me that the Vatican won’t approve the next one either. But something also tells me these folks won’t care.

Oh, and don’t confuse this movie with the upcoming Vatican Tapes that centers on a series of events that unfold after a tape gets leaked from the Vatican displaying an exorcism that goes wrong.

Looks like Catholics are popular again in Hollywood.
