EFM 2013: Joseph Fiennes Goes From Dirty Priest to The Unholy

EFM 2013: Joseph Fiennes Goes From Dirty Priest to The UnholyIn "American Horror Story: Asylum" actor Joseph Fiennes played a lying priest who was raped by a demon. Not content with that being his only brush with evil in his life, he's moving on to even darker pastures with The Unholy!

THR reports that Ross Katz is set to direct Joseph Fiennes and Morena Baccarin ("Homeland") in Gold Circle Entertainment's The Unholy. Good Universe will shop the supernatural thriller to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin, which gets under way later this week. Principal photography is set to start in the spring.

Katz will direct from a script written by E.L. Katz, based on an original idea by Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza (the [REC] franchise).

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.

Um, this is very similar to the storyline of REC 2. Could this be a non-prequel that "takes place in the same universe" as Balaguero's other movie?
