The Exorcist: Fox Developing 'Modern Reinvention' of Classic Thriller

Great news for fans of projectile vomiting and potty-mouthed pre-teens: Fox has placed a pilot order for The Exorcist, an hour-long “modern reinvention” of William Blatty’s 1971 book (which spawned the classic 1973 horror film).

Adapted by up-and-coming screenwriter Jeremy Slater, the project is being described as “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.”
