Undeterred by the wrath of Pazuzu while making EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING, director Renny Harlin is taking another crack at the genre with something a bit more modern, THE COVENANT. Sony’s Screen Gems was kind enough to provide Fango an exclusive first look at the poster, which hints at the film’s “male version of THE CRAFT” sorta vibe. You’ll be seeing this one-sheet hit theaters in the coming weeks.
Penned by J.S. Cardone and poised to hit theaters September 8, the film concerns a quartet of teens, the Sons of Ipswitch, whose secret and centuries-old family silence surrounding their inherited witchy powers is jeopardized by a death on campus. Steven (SKY HIGH) Strait stars alongside Sebastian Stan, Laura (VENOM) Ramsey, Taylor Kitsch and Toby Hemingway. Look for a set-visit report on THE COVENANT in Fango #256, on sale in August.
