Deadline.com learns that Jeremy Slater is reportedly writing the script for the potential new horror series and TV networks, both cable and broadcast, have shown interest in it. “The Ring” executive produced Roy Lee, will serve as executive producer. Slater’s work is said to be a brand new take on the material.
William Peter Blatty’s book “The Exorcist” is inspired by the 1949 exorcism case of Roland Doe which occurred in the late 1940s. The film deals with the demonic possession of a young girl and her mother’s desperate attempts to win back her daughter through an exorcism conducted by two priests. The film earned ten Academy Award nominations and won two of them, for Best Sound Mixing and Best Adapted Screenplay. It went to be named the scariest film of all time by Entertainment Weekly in 1999.
