Since Blumhouse has released the trailer for The Exorcist 2, there have been a lot of questions. Blumhouse is known for making horror movies that are low-budget and high on suspense. They’ve also had success with franchises like Insidious, Paranormal Activity, and Sinister. So it’s no surprise fans want to know what they should expect from the sequel to one of the scariest movies ever made! This article will answer all your burning questions about Blumhouse’s upcoming release: The Exorcist 2!
When will The Exorcist 2 launch?
David Gordon Green’s new movie will start a new trilogy. David was an actor who started his career making movies on his own on indie dramas. Green had success with his comedy movies. He was in Pineapple Express with Nic Cage and Joe with Paul Rudd. Danny McBride, who usually does funny things, made a movie that was scary. He did it in 2018. Critics liked the movie and it made over $255 million from just 10 million dollars!
The Exorcist film franchise came from a novel by William P. Blatty. He wrote the script too, and it was made into an adaptation in 1973 by William Friedkin. As a 12-year-old girl comes under possession by a demonic entity known as Pazuzu, two Catholic Priests are called in by her mother to exorcise the spirit. The franchise launcher debuted to large critical and commercial success, grossing over $441 million and garnering 10 Academy Award nominations, winning for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound.
On the day that Green was confirmed, Universal and Peacock closed a deal for them to make a new trilogy of “The Exorcist”. They will do this by launching the first film, which will be written and directed by Green. This is because of their partnership with McBride and Scott Teems on “Halloween.” In the first part of this movie, Leslie Odom Jr. will be a father who has a child that is possessed by evil spirits. He turns to Ellen Burstyn’s character for help. No date was given for when this film will be released but they are targeting an October 2023 release date and we might see its sequels in Peacock debuts for the second and third installments.
A new trilogy is being made about a movie called The Exorcist. There is either going to be people excited or people who will want to know more about it. Unlike the slasher genre of Halloween, the demonic possession formula of The Exorcist is harder to continue a story after just one movie. There is no more concern about the next sequel to the Exorcist. Jason Blum has said that it will be just as good as Halloween.
The movie The Exorcist is coming out. In the first one 40 years ago, Ellen Burstyn played the mother. The new Exorcist will not change any of the previous mythology. You might find it interesting to see if he ignores the Fox series, in which Burstyn’s character died. Or does the story happen before it? We will not know the future of this horror franchise until October 13, 2023.
The Exorcist Reboot Trilogy With Ellen Burstyn Returning
The power of Christ may compel you, but at least in Hollywood the Devil still holds some sway. Indeed, an entire trilogy of The Exorcist sequels is now taking shape at Blumhouse Productions, Universal Pictures, and Peacock, and the new movies will even see Ellen Burstyn reprise the role of Chris MacNeil for the first time in 50 years. That’s some damn powerful casting.
Producer Jason Blum recently revealed to Den of Geek that David Gordon Green was writing a sequel to the seminal 1973 horror movie which would “be like David’s Halloween sequel,” referencing the 2018 reboot that ignored all the previous Halloween follow-ups and acted as a definitive follow-up to the 1978 original.
That movie has since been spun off into a full-fledged trilogy, including this October’s Halloween Kills. At the time, it was an open question whether that meant Green’s The Exorcist would ignore the other Exorcist sequels and prequels released between 1977 and 2005. However, in a recent interview, Green suggested that his new film would not necessarily contradict those other sequels, even as it goes in its own way from them.
We now have a lot more clarity on what that way is thanks to Universal, which has confirmed the new movie will star the Tony-winning Leslie Odom Jr. in an unspecified role, as well as Burstyn. Additionally, they revealed actor-writer-producer Danny McBride and Scott Teams co-wrote the story for the new Exorcist movie. (McBride previously co-wrote 2018’s Halloween.) The finished script for the new movie is penned by Green and Peter Sattler (Broken Diamonds) and is already considered to be the first part of a trilogy. Further, the movie has been slated for an Oct. 13, 2023 release date.
