Get ready to be exorcised from your summer boredom with the chilling new film The Exorcism, starring Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe. Vertical Entertainment has secured North American rights to this highly anticipated horror flick, slated for a theatrical release this June.

A Haunting Legacy

The Exorcism, formerly The Georgetown Project, is a production of Miramax. It is from horror mastermind Kevin Williamson (Scream franchise) and Outerbanks Entertainment. Joshua John Miller directed the film, which boasts a script co-written by Miller and M.A. Fortin, the creative duo behind the hit series Queen of the South.

A Star-Studded Cast

Crowe takes center stage as Anthony Miller, a troubled actor battling inner demons while filming a supernatural horror movie. The lines between reality and performance begin to blur. And his estranged daughter (played by Ryan Simpkins of the “Fear Street” trilogy) investigates the source of his erratic behavior. Is it a relapse into past addictions, or is something more sinister at play?

A Director Steeped in Horror

The Exorcism marks a significant milestone for Miller, transitioning him from a seasoned actor, producer, and writer to director. Horror fans will recognize his name – the son of the legendary Jason Miller, who portrayed Father Damien Karras in the classic 1973 film The Exorcist. With his extensive knowledge of the genre and a personal connection to its history, Miller promises to deliver a fresh take on the exorcism narrative.

Vertical Partner Peter Jarowey said, “Joshua has a profound expertise in this genre, and we applaud his creation of a film that reverently nods to classic horror while adding a fresh twist. We want to thank everyone at Miramax for their partnership and are looking forward to bringing the film to theatres nationwide this summer.”

A Scream You Can Hear

Shudder, the premiere streaming service for horror content from AMC Networks has secured the rights to The Exorcism, ensuring the film will be available to horror fans after its theatrical run.

A Collaboration of Horror Powerhouses

The Exorcism boasts an impressive team behind the scenes. Producers include Miramax, Kevin Williamson, Ben Fast, and Bill Block. The film is executive produced by Padraic McKinley, Scott Putman, Andrew Golov, and Thom Zadra. Rounding out the crew are talented individuals like cinematographer Simon Duggan, production designer Michael T. Perry, editor Matthew Woolley, composers Daniel Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans, and costume designer Jodi Leesley.

A Supernatural Summer Awaits

With its talented cast and chilling premise, The Exorcism is poised to be a must-see for horror fans this summer. Mark your calendars for June 7th and prepare to be exorcised from your summer slump!
