'The Exorcist' Will Return But To The Small Screen

Vulture is reporting that 'The Exorcist' one of the greatest (if the not the greatest) horror film of all time will be getting the remake treatment for the small screen. The William Friedkin/William Peter Blatty film will be brought to the small screen by 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' director/writer Sean Durkin into a ten-episode television series, this time backed by Morgan Creek and produced by Roy Lee, the executive producer of films like The Departed and The Ring.

Unlike the iconic 1973 film, Durkin’s version of The Exorcist follows the events leading up to a demonic possession and especially the after-effects of how a family copes with it: In short, not well (really, after you start seeing stuff like this, can you blame them?), and when medical and psychiatric explanations fail, the desperate family turns to the church, with Father Damien Karras finally brought in to attempt the exorcism.

The Exorcist TV series won't be formally shopped to networks for another two weeks, but executives are already calling seeking meetings to inquire about landing the Durkin update.
