TV funny man Joel McHale is in final negotiations to join the cast of Scott Derrickson’s (Sinister) latest thriller, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film centers around a New York cop (Eric Bana) who has put his faith behind him, only to be tested when he finds himself pitted against a soldier possessed by the devil (played by Prometheus’ Sean Harris).

A far cry from gigs like The Soup and Community, McHale will play Bana’s tough-as-nails NYPD partner. Olivia Munn is set to star as Bana’s wife and Edgar Ramirez as a Jesuit priest.

Derrickson co-wrote the script with Paul Harris Boardman (The Exorcism of Emily Rose), and Screen Gems’ Jerry Bruckheimer is set to produce.
