New Exorcist Trilogy Coming from Blumhouse

BY July 29, 2021

It was only five years ago that Fox rebooted The Exorcist as a TV series. However, that’s like, a million years in Hollywood. Now Blumhouse will be rebooting the whole thing as a new Exorcist trilogy. And the first one, at least, is from someone who’s recently rebooted another horror classic.

David Gordon Green Will Direct First of the New Exorcist Trilogy

David Gordon Green directed and cowrote 2018’s Halloween, a sequel to the original 1978 iconic movie. That film is also part of a trilogy; Halloween Kills will hit theaters this October, while Halloween Ends is coming next year. (The first Halloween sequel was delayed, of course, from release last year.) But that’s not the only trilogy Green has planned.

Green will be directing the first film in the new Exorcist trilogy. He’s also writing the script with Peter Sattler. Sattler has previously written and directed 2014’s Camp X-Ray, a film where Kristen Stewart plays a guard at Guantamano Bay who befriends a detainee.

There’s no word yet on what the new Exorcist story will be, but like Halloween, it appears to be a continuation of the original film. That’s because Ellen Burstyn will be returning to the franchise to play Chris MacNeil. In the 1973 original movie, it was Chris’s daughter Regan (Linda Blair) who went all head-spinny. Leslie Odom, Jr., will be starring in the new trilogy, by the way. There have been a lot of installments in the Exorcist franchise, from the originals to a movie released last year call The Exorcist Confidential.

Trilogy Part of a Deal with Peacock

The first film in the trilogy will hit theaters in October 2023. However, Universal will also make the film available through Peacock. The streaming service is a part of NBCUniversal, after all.

Blumhouse will be producing the trilogy in collaboration with Morgan Creek Entertainment. Morgan Creek president David Robinson said in a statement, “There’s no better time to be joining forces with the team at Peacock, reuniting with the great team at Universal and finally getting to work with my friends at Blumhouse, than on this classic franchise.”

We’ll keep you updated as we learn more. Below, here’s the latest trailer for Halloween Kills, in theaters October 15.
