The Exorcist: Believer – Check out the posters for the new sequel to the original film

David Gordon Green has already directed sequels to a classic horror movie in the shape of 2018’s Halloween.

He will be following the same formula with The Exorcist as Universal is spending $400 million to buy a new Exorcist trilogy with plans to screen some of the films on Peacock. Ellen Burstyn, the Oscar-winning actress from the 1973 original, will reprise her role as Chris MacNeil. They will be produced by Blumhouse.

The new trilogy will be a sequel to the first film and ignore the sequels. That also means it will be ignoring the brilliant 2016 series which followed on from the events of the original.

Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton, One Night in Miami) will also star in the new film. He will be playing a character who tracks down Burstyn’s after his child becomes possessed. Ann Dowd (Hereditary), Lidya Jewett (Netflix’s Nightbooks), Raphael Sbarge (“Gaslit”), Jennifer Nettles (The Righteous Gemstones), and Olivia Marcum also star.

“Blumhouse has always experienced incredible partnership from the team at Universal, and I’m grateful to Donna Langley and Jimmy Horowitz for believing in the vision of David’s film and having the foresight to be flexible with distribution, so the team feels top notch support through the lifeline of the film. They’re committed to theatrical exhibition and will also [be] serving streaming viewers well by bringing an exciting franchise like the ‘Exorcist’ to Peacock too,” said Jason Blum, the CEO and founder of Blumhouse. “I’m grateful to be working with David Robinson and the great team at Morgan Creek on this iconic franchise.”

The first Exorcist movie is due out on 13th October 2023.
