The story of Malachi Martin truly is an incredible one and strangely enough, little know. We, at Causeway Pictures, want to create a feature bio-documentary using narration, interviews, archive materials and dramatised inserts where we will tell a story of one of religions most notorious figures. From Co.Kerry, Ireland, we intend to follow Malachi's travels through Europe, his work at an exorcist, his high powered life in the Vatican before moving to America where he would spend his final years working as a teacher, exorcist and, even though he had left the church in unusual circumstances, in some way still a priest.
