Morgan Creek once said that they were never going to remake The Exorcist. However, seeing as we now seem to be living in the laziest, most creatively barren movie climate since – whenever – they’ve changed their minds. Almost buried in a report about a TV series of David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers were the words:
“Current Morgan Creek projects include Stay Tuned at AMC, with a planned theatrical reboot of The Exorcist in the works for 2021.”
And that’s all it says; no news on who’s writing the script, directing or starring, though we’ll do our best to keep you informed when details do materialise. Needless to say, I hate the idea, but then again the disappointingly short lived TV series was surprisingly good so I could end up eating my words.
