The Exorcist reboot will feel new while as yet being connected to the original, says Jason Blum. William Friedkin’s 1973 film, situated thusly on the 1971 novel of a similar name by William Peter Blatty, is viewed as one of the greatest blood and gore movies at any point made. Blumhouse Productions, established by Blum in 2000, has become known for its yield in the loathsomeness type, generating both long-running establishments and creative, independent ventures.
The organization has since started improvement on a set of three of movies rebooting The Exorcist, and in a meeting with CinePop, Blum communicates trust in his methodology. He says they expect to accomplish for Friedkin’s film what they accomplished for Carpenter’s Halloween, and wipe the slate of spin-offs clean to rediscover what is intriguing and fruitful with regards to the original. This is confirmed, Blum says, by having a similar creative group tackle this undertaking:
What I desire to do with The Exorcist is exactly the same thing we did with Halloween, you know. Halloween, the first movie was great, and the subsequent movie was OK, and most of them were not awesome. And afterward we came in and sort of re-jiggered it, and individuals liked it, so I trust we can do exactly the same thing with The Exorcist. Everybody thinks we’re going to fall all over, but I think, we have a similar producer, a similar writer, David Gordon Green and Danny McBride. What’s more, I think we’ll reevaluate The Exorcist so that it’ll feel new, new, unique, but, you know, related to the first movie, but additionally really, really alarming.
It’s justifiable for repulsiveness fans to be apprehensive with regards to an Exorcist reboot, considering how the first film is respected, but Blumhouse’s history ought to urge watchers to keep a receptive outlook. David Gordon Green’s Halloween fostered a fascinating discourse with Carpenter’s film, and keeping in mind that it’s not considered comparable to the original, it’s surely the establishment’s best continuation yet. With Ellen Burstyn set to return similarly Jamie Lee Curtis did, this Exorcist set of three could be another unforeseen pleasure.
