Exorcism is HOT, which means only one thing – we’re going to be constantly disappointed. Nothing will ever be as good as The Exorcist. With that said, now you can keep those expectations low and maybe we’ll get something at least “fun”. With Lionsgate’s The Last Exorcism on the horizon, along with Filmax’s Rec 2 and Exorcisumus, New Line has finally started casting up The Rite (previously The Rite: The Making of a Modern Day Exorcist) after sitting on the shelf for a year and a half. Who will star? Find out below.
Anthony Hopkins (The Wolfman, Silence of the Lambs) is counting his blessings, coming aboard to star in The Rite, a supernatural thriller from New Line being produced by Contrafilm’s Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson.
Mikael Hafstrom – who directed the stylish Drowning Ghost and Dimension’s 1408 – is getting behind the camera from a screenplay by Michael Petroni (Queen of the Damned, Possession).
Adapted from a book by Matt Baglio and based on true events, the story centers on a disillusioned American seminary student who attends exorcism school at the Vatican and ultimately finds his faith through encounters with demonic forces.
Hopkins (pictured below) will play a priest who is an expert in exorcisms and whose methods are not necessarily traditional.
