Theatrical Reboot of THE EXORCIST In The Works!
According to Deadline, there’s a theatrical reboot of The Exorcist in the works at Morgan Creek with targeting a 2021 release date.
No other information is available at this time, but we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground to bring you additional details as they emerge. Stay tuned and check back often.
If it’s been a while, check out the trailer and synopsis for the original Exorcist, released in 1973 (and still considered one of the scariest movies ever made) below.
One of the most profitable horror movies ever made, this tale of an exorcism is based loosely on actual events. When young Regan (Linda Blair) starts acting odd — levitating, speaking in tongues — her worried mother (Ellen Burstyn) seeks medical help, only to hit a dead end. A local priest (Jason Miller), however, thinks the girl may be seized by the devil. The priest makes a request to perform an exorcism, and the church sends in an expert (Max von Sydow) to help with the difficult job.
The Exorcist is directed by William Friedkin from a screenplay written by William Peter Blatty who wrote the novel.
