Rupert Wyatt to direct The Exorcist TV pilot

4 February 2016 12:15 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having departed 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spinoff last year, Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) is heading to the small screen for his next project, with Deadline reporting that the director is set to helm the pilot for Fox’s TV adaptation of The Exorcist.

The one-hour drama is a modern reimagining of William Peter Blatty’s 1971 novel and is described as “a propulsive, serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession, and confronting the face of true evil.”

The Exorcist is being executive produced by Jeremy Slater (The Lazarus Project, Fantastic Four), who has also written the script for the pilot.

Rupert Wyatt To Resurrect A Horror Icon By Helming TV Pilot Of The Exorcist

2 February 2016 3:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox is moving fast in its efforts to resurrect dormant horror classic The Exorcist. Barely a week has passed since the network ordered a pilot episode of the modern reimagining, and now Fox has appointed director Rupert Wyatt at the helm.

Best known for his work across Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Mark Wahlberg drama The Gambler, Wyatt will take point for a reinvention of William Peter Blatty’s seminal 1971 book, a different spin on an old horror that has been pitched as a “serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession and confronting the face of true evil.”

For Wyatt, it marks a return to TV following a string of stop-starts in the blockbuster space. Not long after opting to pass up tentpole sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the filmmaker also pulled out of The Equalizer and, »

Rupert Wyatt To Direct Pilot For 'The Exorcist' TV Series

2 February 2016 11:49 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

How scary is William Friedkin's 1973 horror landmark "The Exorcist"? So scary that even the stuff that didn't make the film is genuinely terrifying. As the sequels for the movie demonstrated, there was simply no matching the original. However, it's a valuable brand, which means there's more possession to come, this time in the shape of a TV series. Rupert Wyatt ("Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes") has been tapped to direct the pilot for Fox's upcoming TV version of the ordeal undergone by Regan MacNeil. Jeremy Slater ("Fantastic Four," "The Lazarus Effect" —hmm, those are some worrying credentials) has penned a script that will be inspired by William Peter Blatty's novel, following two priests who must help one family overcome a case of demonic possession.

11 January 2016 11:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November, producer/screenwriter Simon Kinberg confirmed that production on 20th Century Fox's X-Men spinoff Gambit will begin sometime this spring, describing the movie as a "sexy heist thriller." Channing Tatum is still set to star as the card-throwing title character, with L&#233a Seydoux portraying the female lead, Belladonna "Bella" Boudreaux. Today we have a new report from Wgno, which reveals that the movie will start production this March in New Orleans.

20th Century Fox previously issued an October 7, 2016 release date for Gambit, putting it up against Warner Bros.' The Accountant, Disney's The Girl on the Train and Lionsgate's Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life. Production was originally set to begin on Gambit last fall, but the production schedule shifted after director Rupert Wyatt (The Gambler) dropped out in September.

"Gambit" Shoots In New Orleans From March

11 January 2016 7:51 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Channing Tatum-led "Gambit" film, a spin-off of 20th Century Fox's "X-Men" franchise, is slated to begin filming in New Orleans this March says Wgno.

The site claims the production is currently holding casting calls for extras with filming taking place largely in the Hollywood South area of the city.

The "X-Men" solo film was originally going to begin filming in November last year, but Rupert Wyatt's unexpected exit from the project in September delayed it with Doug Liman eventually coming onboard.

The film, which also stars Lea Seydoux, is still currently targeting an October release, though it's widely expected that will be pushed back to Spring 2017. »

11 January 2016 5:45 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Gambit film starring Channing Tatum is still very much happening. Though it won't meet its 2016 release date, filming is reportedly scheduled to start in March.  Gambit was originally slated to start filming last November and arrive in North American theaters on October 7,2016. However, after director Rupert Wyatt dropped out the project Fox pushed back the start of filming to find a replacement. Though there's been no official word from Fox, producer Simon Kinberg recently confirmed that the film's release date would be pushed to 2017 . Doug Liman is expected to replace Wyatt in the director's chair. At last night's Golden Globe Awards, fashion experts were bewildered by Tatum's haircut, not realizing that he's preparing for his role as everyone's favorite, Cajun X-Men. »
