Neeson Takes On The Devil

1 November 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Reuters reports that Liam Neeson has signed on to play a younger version of Max von Sydow's character, Father Merrin, in the prequel to The Exorcist, titled Exorcist: Dominion. The film, to be directed by John Frankenheimer, takes place in Africa just after World War II. Though neither of the previous Exorcist sequels have received a particularly positive reception, significant star power has been brought to bear behind the scenes as well, with bestselling novelist Caleb Carr reworking a script by Terminator 2 scribe William Wisher.

Exorcist Prequel Is Go!

7 February 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The long-awaited prequel to the definitive horror movie The Exorcist has finally got the go-ahead. Two critically-panned sequels already exist to William Friedkin's acclaimed supernatural tale and now, following the success of The Exorcist re-release with never-before-seen footage last year, it's believed there's a market for more vomit-filled horror flicks. The prequel, called The Exorcist: Dominion, has been in the works for several years and has been penned by top novelist Caleb Carr who is also tipped to direct. The movie will focus on the first battle between Father Merrin - played by Max von Sydow in the original - and the demon Pazuzu, while the young priest is doing missionary work in Africa. A casting call has gone out in Los Angeles for a 10 to 14-year-old boy to take a leading role in the flick - presumably to play the unfortunate child who gets to 'host' the devil, just as Linda Blair did in the 1973 film. The project has already been rubbished by original Exorcist scribe William Peter Blatty »
