As previously reported David Gordon Green is moving on to The Exorcist franchise, helping to create an entire new trilogy that’ll serve as sequels to the original classic currently in development at Universal.
In a recent interview Green talked about his writing process and his future involvement on the franchise.
Green confirmed in the interview that he will co-write and direct all three films and said that
“the first one of our trilogy is written and the second two are being outlined. So we’ve got a ways to go on that, but we know where we’re going. It’s a new journey [with] some familiar characters and some new ones as well.”
Check out the full interview here.
Leslie Odom Jr. will star in the new Exorcist trilogy and original cast member Ellen Burstyn is back as Chris MacNeil!
The plot details for the upcoming sequel are minimal but state that:
“Odom Jr. will play the father of a possessed child. Desperate for help, he tracks down Ms. Burstyn’s character.”
The Exorcist franchise hasn’t been on the big screen since the 2005 release of Dominion: Prequel to The Exorcist, an alternate version of the previous year’s Exorcist: The Beginning. Those films came in the wake of 1977’s The Exorcist II: The Heretic and 1990’s The Exorcist III.
More recently, “The Exorcist” became a short-lived television series at Fox, which was surprisingly excellent and cleverly took place in the same world as the original classic. The series was cancelled after just two seasons.
This week see Don Mancini’s “Chucky” series premiering on SYFY & USA last night and Halloween Kills headed to theaters and Peacock on Friday. Yes, both Chucky and Michael Myers are back in the very same week, and since they’re both Universal properties, well, that means the two can co-exist within the same marketing. Now Universal have allowed the two iconic characters to meet for the first time in a new TV Spot for you may have seen while watching “Chucky” last night.
The coronavirus pandemic saw most major in-person events get either cancelled or delayed back in 2020, which resulted in Blumhouse Productions delivering their first virtual BlumFest, a celebration which has returned this year again in virtual form bringing with it “surprises and sneak peeks” of many of their upcoming projects.
Jason Blum hopes BlumFest 2022 will be an in-person event.
It had been reported that Ellen Burstyn will also reprise her role in an upcoming reboot of ‘The Exorcist’ from Blumhouse and Morgan Creek Productions, in partnership with Universal and Peacock.; she starred as Chris MacNiel in the original 1973 film. Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton, One Night In Miami) is also set to star.
