Black List writer Barbara Marshall has been hired by Summit Entertainment to do a new pass on the script for Exorcism Diaries, per Deadline.
The film is based on the book “The Real Story Behind The Exorcist” by Mark Opsasnick and is being produced by Roy Lee, Sonny Mallhi and Doug Davison. Summit’s tale centers on “a reporter searching for the truth behind the most famous exorcism in history, but soon discovers that the real-life story is not quite finished. As a result, she finds herself in harm’s way of the same supernatural entity that she is chasing.”
No word on if Marshall is doing a page-1 rewrite or if she’s working from the prior drafts by Jay Baruchel, Jesse Chabot and Mark Opsasnick.
