Graphic Novel ‘The Mexorcist’ Gets Possessed

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.

      Ha Ha I wasn’t even paying attention until you pointed that out. Incredibly derivative and lame. I hope the writers come up with a better explanation about why a Mexican cartel would want to bring about the apocalypse.
