Jerry Bruckheimer Films is now in production on the Screen Gems supernatural thriller feature film "Beware the Night", and casting for day player actors and background performers is ongoing. Filming is taking place in the New York City area through August, 2013. All ages and types are being cast as extras. Principal actor casting has been taking place in both Los Angeles and New York. "Beware the Night" is based on the novel of the same name written by sixteen-year NYPD veteran, Ralph Sarchie.

"Beware the Night" centers on Irish Catholic NYPD detective Ralph Sarchie, who works out of the 46th Precinct in South Bronx. He also works with his partner investigating cases of demonic possession and assisting in the exorcisms of humanity's most ancient, and most dangerous, foes. While working on a murder case, Sarchie runs into a renegade priest who is convinced that a demonic element is at play, and finds himself targeted by the devil in the form of a possessed soldier.

Starring in "Beware the Night" is multiple award winning Australian actor Eric Bana playing the role of detective Ralph Sarchie. Bana recently completed shooting the feature film "Lone Survivor" starring alongside Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, and Ben Foster. The stunningly beautiful model and actress Olivia Munn is playing Bana's girlfriend, while Joel McHale plays Bana's partner. Golden Globe Award nominee Edgar Ramirez is on board as a Jesuit priest, and Sean Harris plays the role of a possessed soldier.

Filmmaker Scott Derrickson is directing from an adapted screenplay that he wrote along with Paul Harris Boardman. Derrickson also wrote and directed the Screen Gems courtroom drama horror film "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" which had a budget of $20 million and has raked in $131 million at the box office. He then directed the sci-fi remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still" which has taken in over $233 million on an $80 million budget. He directed and wrote the thriller "Sinister" on a $3 million budget, bringing in over $48 million in the USA alone.

Nine-time Primetime Emmy Award winner Jerry Bruckheimer is executive producing under the banner of his company Jerry Bruckheimer Films along with Chad Oman and Mike Stenson. Bruckheimer has an impressive list of film producing credits that includes "Top Gun," "The Rock," "Con Air," "Pearl Harbor," "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," and "The Lone Ranger".
