THE LAST EXORCISM Sequel Moving Forward; Damien Chazelle Writing the Script

     August 22, 2011


Following on the heels of the original’s financial success, a sequel to 2010′s The Last Exorcism is now in the works. Heat Vision reports that Damien Chazelle will pen the script for the follow-up which is scheduled to begin production this fall. Chazelle, a Harvard grad whose debut feature Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench premiered at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival, also penned the 2010 Black List script The Claim which was picked up last October. Most recently, the busy scribe sold his thriller screenplay Grand Piano to producer Adrian Guerra (Buried) who has Eugenio Mira attached to direct.

As for The Last Exorcism, details are sparse regarding Studio Canal’s sequel.  Director Daniel Stamm’s original was made on a budget of around $1.5 million and took in approximately $62.5 million at the worldwide box office. The pic took a found-footage approach and centered on a preacher who allows a film crew to document his final foray into exorcism land.

    If this was a prequel you’ld call it the second to last exorcism and name your following sequels/prequels like that. Another possible title would be My Son’s First Exorcism.
