The graphic novels about a supernatural Latino superhero haven’t even been published, but Pantelion Films isn’t waiting.
Deadline reports that the company backed by Lionsgate and Televisa picked up distribution rights to The Mexorcist, “about a fallen exorcist called back to duty when his brother is murdered by a Mexican cartel hellbent on bringing about the apocalypse.”
Peter Block of A Bigger Boat Productions developed the script with Andrew Cosby and Ed Quinn, who created the graphic novel series. Cosby also will make his feature directorial debut on the film, which is eyed to start production this year.
