Ridley Scott has been tapped to direct a project for Showtime, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed. "The Vatican" marks the pay-channel’s first pilot for series consideration in 2013 and the first TV pilot for Scott, the report notes.

"The Vatican" is an hourlong modern-day thriller from writer Paul Attanasio of "House," and looks at the political goings-on within the Catholic Church.

Production on the drama, from Sony TV, starts next year, with Attanasio, Scott and David Zucker of "The Good Wife" executive producing.
