Corin Hardy, who made 2015 horror film “The Hallow” and recently exited “The Crow,” has been tapped to direct Paramount action film “Hell Bent.”

The film, considered a major priority for the studio, is being described as the “Dirty Dozen goes to hell.”

With casting set to happen very soon, the script for “Hell Bent” is being finalized. Producers include Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian.

The movie revolves around a group of mercenaries who are murdered in a Brazilian jail. From there they quite literally fall into the depths of hell.

Their new assignment: kill Satan before he can spread his evil to Earth.

Hardy is represented by WME, Hugo Young at Independent Talent Group and Elevate Entertainment.
