1973 – Warner Bros. Entertainment

Ellen Burstyn, back in the new “The Exorcist” trilogy.

CINEMA – This is one of the most cult horror films of its generation. This Monday July 26, New York Times reveals that The Exorcist will indeed make its return on the screens, in the form of a trilogy with, in the cast, its heroine of yesteryear: the American actress Ellen Burstyn.

Contrary to what is being done at the moment, this is not a reboot, indicates the daily. The trilogy, the rights of which were bought for several hundred million dollars by Universal, is expected to tell the story of the father of a possessed child. Portrayed by Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton, One Night in Miami), this one, desperate, has only one solution: to seek help from Chris MacNeil.

It was she who, in 1973, played the title role of the mother whose little girl, possessed by the devil, was subjected to the terrifying sessions of exorcism for the first time, in the film by William Friedkin. . Oscar for best screenplay, The Exorcist had two sequels and a prequel.

On the production side, the keys have been entrusted to David Gordon Green, American director to whom we owe the horrific franchise Halloween. Jason Blum, known in particular for having worked on Get Out and Paranormal Activity, will be in production.

A release date has already been brought forward. The first film in the new trilogy is slated to hit theaters on October 13, 2023, but possibly at the same time on Universal’s US streaming platform Peacock.
