Any horror fan knows that the best monsters never truly die. David Gordon Green brought Michael Myers back in the well-received 2018 reboot of Halloween, and now he’s in talks to film a brand-new Exorcist film according a report from The Observer.
Blumhouse Productions, the studio that brought us modern horror favorites like Get Out, Paranormal Activity, and the Purge, is reportedly developing a new Exorcist film, with Green as the director. Jason Blum, David Robinson, and James Robinson will produce.
After bringing Halloween back to life, Green filmed a sequel, Halloween Kills. COVID-19 delayed the movie significantly, but the film is now set to hit theaters in October 2021. The Exorcist premiered in 1973, directed by William Friedkin, starring Linda Blair, Ellen Burstyn, Jason Miller, and Max von Sydow as a 12-year-old girl possessed by a demon and the priest trying to free her of the possession.
