mike-pattonMike Patton has been hired to score the upcoming horror thriller The Vatican Tapes. The movie is directed by Mark Neveldine (Crank, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance) and stars Michael Pena, Djimon Hounsou, Dougray Scott, Kathleen Robertson, Peter Andersson, Olivia Dudley, John Patrick Amedori and Alex Sparrow. The movie centers on a series of events that unfold after a tape gets leaked from the Vatican displaying an exorcism that goes wrong. Christopher Borrelli has written the screenplay based on an original story by himself and Chris Morgan (Fast Five, Wanted). Tom Rosenberg & Gary Lucchesi (Million Dollar Baby, Underworld, The Lincoln Lawyer) are producing the Lakeshore Entertainment production with Chris Cowles. Patton has previously collaborated with Neveldine on the action sequel Crank: High Voltage. The composer and singer/songwriter who is best known as the lead singer of the metal band Faith No More has also previously scored last year’s The Place Beyond the Pines, which is eligible for an Academy Award nomination in the Best Original Score category. The Vatican Tapes is currently in post-production and is expected to be released later this year.
