Exorcist star Ellen Burstyn to reprise role in sequel, this is the first film in the planned trilogy. The upcoming movie will be directed by David Gordon Green and will star Leslie Odom Jr.

Oscar-winning actress Ellen Burstyn will reprise her role from The Exorcist in a sequel to the William Friedkin-directed horror classic, producers shared. In the original 1793 film, Burstyn played Chris MacNeil, the mother of Regan, a possessed child portrayed by Linda Blair. The new movie will be staring Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton) and be directed by David Gordon Green (2018’s Halloween, the upcoming Halloween Kills).

The uploading film is the result of a partnership between Universal, Peacock, Blumhouse, and Morgan Creek. The not yet named sequel is slated to hit theaters October 13, 2023, and the plan is for it to be followed by two more Exorcist films.

Scott Teems, Danny McBride, and Green have worked on the story for the sequel, which is being written by Peter Sattler and Green. Jason Blum will produce on behalf of Blumhouse. David Robinson and James Robinson plans to produce for Morgan Creek. Green, McBride, and Couper Samuelson will executive-produce, and Ryan Turek is looking at the project for Blumhouse.

The Exorcist franchise has faced ups and downs since the release of the first film, which was a box office sensation and earned 10 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. 1977’s Exorcist II: The Heretic was virtually laughed out of theaters, while 1990’s The Exorcist III performed modestly at the box office but over time has become regarded as a classic in its own right by horror fans. The fourth film in the franchise was to be made, one directed by Paul Schrader and the other by Renny Harlin, whose Exorcist: The Beginning was finally released to poor box office returns in 2004. An Exorcist TV show, in which Geena Davis played Regan MacNeil and Sharon Gless portrayed Chris, premiered on Fox in 2016 and lasted two seasons.
