‘Exorcist’ Reboot Ordered By FOX



THR – Fox has ordered an adaptation of the 1971 book to pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

A modern reinvention inspired by William Blatty’s original book, The Exorcist is a propulsive, serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession, and confronting the face of true evil.

Jeremy Slater (Fantastic Four) will write the one-hour drama, and exec produce with James Robinson, David Robinson and Barbara Wall. 20th Century Fox Television will produce in association with Morgan Creek Productions.

This isn’t the first time Fox has turned to successful movie properties for pilot ideas. This past fall, Minority Report failed to catch on with viewers despite it’s impressive performance at the box office. This pilot season also saw the network explore a possible reboot of the 1980 film Urban Cowboy. However, Fox ultimately passed on the project last month.

Cinemax is also in the exorcism business with the upcoming Robert Kirkman drama Outcast.

The Exorcist film hit theaters in 1973 and went on to gross more than $232 million at the box office.
