It is not an exaggeration to say that “The Exorcist” is one of the most iconic horror movies ever. Known for scaring people, this movie was scary. It is the first horror movie to be nominated for Best Picture which has only happened five times since. Today, this movie has good special effects and it is popular.
But for all its success, “The Exorcist” has had a hard time with movies after it. Movies like “Exorcist II” and “Dominion: Prequel to The Exorcist” have not been as successful as the original. The Exorcist III is a movie that was not as good as the first two. Even though there were some good things, they could not compare to the original.
“The Exorcist” will be getting a new movie soon. It was being made by Jason Blum. David Gordon Green is also directing it.
What is the release date of The Exorcist?
So far, the film is still in very early development. There is no exact release date yet. Blum and Green are the only people who have been working on this project so far and they also directed Halloween II, which came out this year. In that movie, they did not talk about other movies. They just talked about “Halloween” from 1978. That film was a success and people liked it. The creators of the “Exorcist” movies hope to do the same thing for them.
“David’s ‘Halloween’ sequel is going to be like it,” said the producer of Den of Geek in June 2021. “This will please all the skeptics. We had a lot of skeptics about ‘Halloween,’ and David turned them around, and I think he will turn it around with ‘The Exorcist.'”
Green’s latest film “The Forever Purge” will come out in theaters on July 2. He is also working on a TV series called “Hellraiser.” His next movie “Halloween Kills” will arrive in theaters this October. Halloween Ends will come out in 2022. There are a lot of movies coming out, so maybe The Exorcist will come out for Halloween 2023.
What is the plot of The Exorcist?
We don’t know what the plot of “The Exorcist” reboot is yet. But Mr. Blum wants to make a sequel that new and old fans will like. He plans on doing something good for both groups. I want to make a movie for people who have seen the first ‘Exorcist’ and liked it. They might be mad, but they will come to see the movie anyway. And I want to make a movie that is good for people who have never seen ‘The Exorcist before. I think that David Gordon Green did that with Halloween. I think he will do the same with The Exorcist too.
The 2018 “Halloween” film told the story of how Laurie dealt with her trauma in the years after the original film. It also talked about how people think about Michael Myers because so many people are scared of him. The movie “Halloween” was made in 1978. It is an amazing horror movie that has shaped horror movies to this day. Hopefully, the “Exorcist” reboot will do the same thing.
Who will be starring in The Exorcist?
The “Halloween” movie was remade. It brought back the original actress, Jamie Lee Curtis, to play Laurie Strode. But it also recast Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney as the murderer, Michael Myers. Since the original film took place 40 years ago, many of the characters are not in this one. Some are people who are related to Laurie, and some are true-crime podcast hosts.
By that logic, a new “The Exorcist” could catch up with major characters like Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn) and Regan MacNeil (Linda Blair). Jason Miller (who played Father Damien Karras) and Max von Sydow (who played Father Lankester Merrin) have passed away, so any involved priests would be played by new actors.
The original “Exorcist” was mostly about a family. The MacNeils are the family that Chris saved her daughter from being possessed by the devil. The new show could introduce other members of this family.
