Tunney fends off devil in ‘Days’

'Niagara' thesp to fight evil with Schwarzenegger in U pic

Robin Tunney — who most recently co-starred in the indie drama “Niagara, Niagara” — is in negotiations to star opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in Beacon Communications/Universal Pictures’ “End of Days.”

Marcus Nispel will direct the feature, based on Andrew Marlowe’s screenplay. Beacon chairman Armyan Bernstein will produce.

Set at the dawn of the new millennium, “Days” chronicles Satan’s visit (in human form) to New York City in search of his bride, with whom he expects to rule the next thousand years. The only thing that stands in his way is the cop-turned-security expert played by Schwarzenegger.

Tunney would play Christine Bethlehem, a daycare teacher who is Lucifer’s unwitting chosen one and who helps Schwarzenegger in his battle to save mankind.

The thriller is slated to begin production at the end of October, lensing in Los Angeles and New York.

Beacon is financing the pic and will handle international distribution, and U will distribute “Days” in North America under its pact with Beacon.

Tunney, who won the Venice Film Festival’s 1997 Volpi Cup for best actress for her work in Bob Gosse’s “Niagara, Niagara,” recently completed the United Artists extraterrestrial thriller “Supernova,” helmed by Walter Hill.

Her other credits include “The Craft,” “Empire Records” and her feature debut in “Encino Man.”

Tunney is repped by Creative Artists Agency.
