The Exorcist is to be turned into a TV series, it has been confirmed.
Sean Durkin, the writer-director of last year’s Martha Marcy May Marlene, is adapting the horror classic into a ten-episode series.
Unlike the iconic 1973 film, Durkin’s version of The Exorcist follows the events leading up to a demonic possession and especially the after-effects of how a family copes with it.
The original Exorcist was adapted from William Peter Blatty’s best seller.
No word yet on what network we can expect to see the finished product.
