The Marvel universe recently got a whole lot darker when they announced that Scott Derrickson would be directing the upcoming Doctor Strange film, but before he takes a crack at that blockbuster, he’ll be looking to scare viewers senseless once again with one of the summer’s most talked about horror films — Deliver Us From Evil. Based on real-life NYPD sergeant Ralph Sarchie’s personal accounts, Derrickson brings to life a true story about possessions, terrors, and evil forces that unfolded in the Bronx in New York City. From the footage we’ve seen, all signs point to a spookily satanic “true story” that shows a completely hidden side of the Big Apple, but ever since Derrickson was named director, we knew Deliver Us From Evil was in good hands.
Satan, exorcisms, death, hauntings — all these genre tools are old hat for Derrickson. Hellraiser: Inferno marked the director’s first feature film, »

This week, we learned that Scott Derrickson (director of Sinister and co-writer on the upcoming Sinister 2) will be making the journey to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as the director for Marvel Studios’ still technically-unannounced Doctor Strange movie. Well before then, however, Derrickson will be unveiling his latest spooky film, in the form of Deliver Us From Evil – and today, we can offer the latest international trailer and first TV spot for the crime/horror thriller, starring Eric Bana (Munich, Star Trek).
In addition to directing, Derrickson also co-wrote the script for Deliver Us From Evil with his frequent collaborator, Paul Harris Boardman (Hellraiser: Inferno, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), drawing inspiration from the book “Beware the Night” written by Lisa Collier Cool and the real-life ex-cop, Ralph Sarchie – who, as portrayed by Bana in the film adaptation, joins ...

Marvel Studios' Ant-Man may be without a director and still planned for release next year, but that hasn't stopped development on the other films that the Disney-owned company has slated for its "Phase 3" lineup. According to Variety and other sources, horror director Scott Derrickson has been tapped to help finally bring Doctor Strange to the big-screen. "Negotiations are still early," reveals trade magazine, "but sources say he is Marvel's choice and deal should be struck shortly." Derrickson's directing credits include Hellraiser: Inferno (2000), The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005), The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008), and Sinister (2012), with Deliver Us From Evil set to hit theaters next month. Even though the filmmaker also co-wrote those horror flicks, The Hollywood Reporter suggests not only that Marvel Studios is still seeking a writer to rewrite the Doctor Strange script, but also that Kung Fu Panda duo screenwriters Jon Aibel and Glenn Berger »
The Marvel marketing machine is now in full swing, promoting the company’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but, as always, our interests lie more in what’s further down the road. The studio is notorious for planning years in advance, and one film they’ve been talking about for some time now is Doctor Strange. We know Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige is excited about it, and though the movie hasn’t even been officially announced yet, we recently heard that a shortlist of directors had emerged.
Mark Andrews (Brave), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) and Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday) were all reportedly in the mix to bring the Sorcerer Supreme to the big screen, and we now have another name that’s been tossed into the ring: Sinister director Scott Derrickson. Check out the official tweet below:

A few weeks ago, we reported that Mark Andrews (Pixar’s Brave), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), and newcomer Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday) were all in the mix to direct Marvel’s Doctor Strange. It’s a diverse bunch of directors, and now one more name is joining their ranks: Scott Derrickson. Derrickson mostly has a horror background. His previous credits include Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Hellraiser: Inferno, and he recently directed the supernatural thriller Deliver Us from Evil. However, he does have a big-budget feature to his name having directed the 2008 remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. Hit the jump for more. In addition to reporting on Derrickson being in the mix for the directing gig, THR writer Borys Kit also tweeted, “Being told Mark Andrews (Brave), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) still on the shortlist,” so I’m wondering if »

In 2012 director Scott Derrickson delivered a flawed but seriously scary horror movie in Sinister, the chilling tale of a man who, for some reason, does not turn on any lights when walking around his house at night. Oh, and there was also an ancient demon who preyed on the souls of children and had the kind of face that you don’t want to see up close.
Derrickson wrote and directed Hellraiser: Inferno - definitely one of the better Hellraiser sequels – as well as The Exorcism of Emily Rose. In his upcoming horror movie Deliver Us from Evil, he returns again to the subject of demonic possession. Eric Bana plays an NYPD officer whose investigation into a series of disturbing crimes draws him unwittingly into a battle against dark supernatural forces.
A new trailer for Deliver Us from Evil has ...
