William Friedkin COMPLETELY Denounces Those Exorcist Remake Rumours

Posted on: September 29th, 2015

Exorcist 1We do love it when directors take to Twitter to make their true feelings clear. William Friedkin has recently taken to the social media platform to announce that he “completely denounces” the idea of an Exorcist remake. Rumours began circulating last week after Morgan Creek Productions were said to be moving forward with future plans Exorcist 2for The Exorcist. As expected, alarm bells started ringing, all hell broke loose and horror purists around the world sobbed in to their pillows.

The Exorcist is one of a few horror films that does not look or feel as old as it is. It was Exorcist 3originally released way back in 1973 but it’s just as damn frightening and nightmare-inducing today. It really doesn’t deserve the remake treatment and we do hope they leave Friedkin’s classic off the reboot/remake/reimagining table where many horrors are lying.

You can check out the trio of tweets below, which suggest that the future plans for The Exorcist may be in relation to sequels and not a straight-up remake. That’s a bit better, right?
