The Next to Last Exorcism! Devilish Sequel on its Way
Joining the ranks of The Final Destination, Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, and of course Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter is the cinéma vérité style chiller The Last Exorcism, proving once and for all that NOTHING is ever final.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the producers of The Last Exorcism are moving ahead with a sequel, tapping writer Damien Chazelle to write the follow-up to the surprise summer 2010 hit.
The original PG-13 film from production company Strike Entertainment (Children of Men) and directed by Daniel Stamm grossed $62.5 million worldwide on a budget of $1.6 million. The found-footage Lionsgate release was written by Andrew Gurland and Huck Botko. A sequel was probably a given considering the profitability of the first film.
Studio Canal is financing the follow-up, and production is slated to begin this fall.
The Last Exorcism centered on an Evangelical preacher, played by Patrick Fabian, who, after years of performing exorcisms, decides to allow a documentary crew to film the last exorcism he plans to perform in order to show his work is a fraud.
