Russell Crowe in a new horror film as Station Eleven's star joins the cast ...

Russell Crowe as the legendary Exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth in the new horror film The Pope's Exorcist has been released for the first time (via Deadline). Two additional actors have also been added to the cast.

Daniel Zovatto and Alex Essoe of Midnight Mass have joined the cast of Station Eleven. No details about their roles have been released yet.

Crowe will play the legendary Italian priest who performed over 100,000 exorcisms for the Vatican. Both films will be influenced by his internationally successful memoirs An Exorcist Tells His Story and An Exorcist: More Stories, which he left behind when he died in 2016.

Crowe was last seen as Zeus in Marvel's Thor: Love and Thunder.

"I'm going to get on my bicycle and ride up to Disney-Fox studios around 9.15, I'll be Zeus," the actor said of JOY Breakfast with The Murphys.

"It's for Thor. It's my final day of Zeus-ing about, and I'm going to enjoy it," he said.

Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who worked on the film's script with director Taika Waititi, said she had no clue about the performance in the movie's mid-credits sequence.

Brett Goldstein of Ted Lasso is shown dressed in his full demigod garb in Russell Crowe's Zeus in the film's mid-credits sequence.

"I saw that with everybody else at the premiere," Robinson told Variety.

"In the same way that Taika didn't know Thor would be returning, I didn't know that Roy Kent was Hercules." I'm a huge Marvel fan, and I was surprised by one moment in the film."

The Popes Exorcist's release date has not yet been announced.
