Yup. The Exorcist is being remade as a ten part miniseries. Why? Cause why not, that’s why. What grinds my gears about this even more is that that Sean Durkin is shepherding this project. Durkin wrote last years almost perfect Martha Marcy May Marlene. In my opinion, the best or second best film of last year (Attack the Block, and Shame are close competitors). Why would such a talented writer/director with such a bright future in the business, be attached to something like this with such a high failure rate? I just don’t get it sometimes. Do I doubt that he’ll be able to craft a great story even though a 2 hr film is being stretched into 10 hrs? Yes I do. But why take arguably one of the scariest and well done horror films ever made and re-do it? Why not make something new and exciting? Fucking fuck.
I hate everything. Unless Elizabeth Olsen signs on, and agrees to show her boobies.
