The Exorcist franchise is being revived by Universal, Blumhouse, and Morgan Creek—and Lidya Jewett (Nightbooks) has joined the cast!
David Gordon Green is directing the film, which will be a sequel to the 1973 original. This is the first film in a planned trilogy.
Also in the cast is Ellen Burstyn, reprising the role of Chris MacNeil. Leslie Odom Jr. (Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery) is playing the father of a possessed child who tracks down MacNeil for help. Ann Dowd (Hereditary) will also star.
After a brief hiatus in December, production on The Exorcist has resumed. The film is slated to release in theatres on October 13th, 2023.
