While there’s still a bit of a wait fot The Last Exorcism Part II, which arrives in theaters March 1 from CBS Films, that doesn’t mean that a third film is off the table! I just got off the phone with Ashley Bell who confirms that the second film leaves room for another potential sequel that they’re hoping to make. I’ll share my FULL interview with Bell next week (closer to the film’s release), but I wanted to get this tidbit out to you a little early.
When asked if there were plans to make a third film, depending on how this one performs, she answered, “There’s a wait and see approach, but yeah there have been [discussions]. There’s a twist at the end [of Part 2] that is literally so shocking! I would love to step back into my Doc Martens for a third time.”
In Part II, “Continuing where the first film left off, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is found alone and terrified in the woods. Back in the relative safety of civilization, Nell realizes that she can’t remember entire portions of the previous months only that she is the last surviving member of her family. Just as Nell begins the difficult process of starting a new life, the evil force that once possessed her is back with other, unimaginably horrific plans that mean herlast exorcism was just the beginning.”
Question – if they make this third film, what should the title be?
