The Exorcist TV series back in development
After the success of Bates Motel and Hannibal, The Exorcist is the next horror film in line to be developed as a TV series...
Well over a year ago we heard the first peeps about a planned television adaptation of William Friedkin's notorious 1973 film The Exorcist. In that incarnation, Martha Marcy May Marlene and now Southcliffe's Sean Durkin was the name attached to write the planned ten-episode series, but this latest project is reportedly a new deal, with a new writer.
Relative newcomer Jeremy Slater, currently working on the Fantastic Four reboot, is the latest writer tasked with translating The Exorcist into serial form. The producer of The Ring, Bates Motel, and roughly eight hundred other projects (seriously, the man has a busy few years planned) Roy Lee is still attached as executive producer.
Very few details have been released about the proposed TV adaptation of William Peter Blatty's demonic possession story. With Hannibal and Bates Motel, both spun out of existing horror franchises, flourishing on the small screen and about to enter their second seasons though, it was only a matter of time before others followed suit.
