Do you believe?
The first of the three planned The Exorcist sequels from Blumhouse Productions, Universal Pictures and Peacock is aiming for an Oct. 13 theatrical release, and now fans know the official title and have a description of footage from the film, according to a report on Deadline.
Producer Jason Blum and director David Gordon Green this week brought the footage to CinemaCon, and revealed the new title as Exorcist: Believer.
In the footage (not yet online), the film’s star Leslie Odom Jr.’s daughter is missing. It turns out she was in the woods for three days, but now she’s in the hospital–and she starts convulsing.
As the footage continues, other younger girls are seemingly suffering from demonic possessions, and Ellen Burstyn (reprising her Chris MacNeil role) is trying to help the children. Then, surprisingly, she confronts one of the girls, saying, “We’ve met before.” And thereby, no doubt, hangs a tale.
This sequel–written by Green, Scott Teems, Danny McBride and Peter Sattler–follows a father (Odom) of a possessed child who tracks down MacNeil (Burstyn) for help.
The rest of the cast includes Linda Blair (reprising her Regan MacNeil role), Ann Dowd, Olivia Marcum, Lidya Jewett, Raphael Sbarge, Jennifer Nettles and Okwui Okpokwasili.
