David Gordon Green, the brilliant director behind the new Halloween trilogy, is co-writing and directing the upcoming movie The Exorcist for Morgan Creek and Blumhouse.
While some sites are reporting that it is a reboot, according to our sources, the new movie is in fact a SEQUEL!
While the title and plot are still being kept quiet, we do know that the movie will be set years after the events of the 1973 original, in the same way as Green’s Halloween (2018) was for that franchise. Mike Sprague is set to pen the script. We also know that William Friedkin will sadly not be involved in the sequel.
Horror heavy-hitter Jason Blum will be producing alongside David Robinson and James Robinson.
Blumhouse, who was behind Halloween, continues to dominate the horror genre. Green’s Halloween was a huge hit, grossing a massive $255 million worldwide and claiming the title of the second-highest opening at the box offices in the horror genre that year.
As for Morgan Creek, they brought us the original The Exorcist, as well as the prequel Dominion, Exorcist: The Beginning, and The Exorcist III. It’s only fitting that they deliver the new installment.
