Morgan Creek is backing this series, adapted from the classic William Peter Blatty novel. The show will take a different approach than the 1973 film classic, following the events that lead up to the demonic possession, and how the family turns to Father Damien Karras after doctors and psychiatrists fail to explain the bizarre behavior.
The series won't be shopped to the networks for two weeks, although executives are already scheduling meetings for this updated series.
William Friedkin directed the 1973 adaptation of The Exorcist, which centered on a priest (Max von Sydow) who tries to remove a demonic spirit from a young girl. It was the first horror movie to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.
