The Truth Behind ‘The Exorcist’ Remake

It was reported a little prematurely the other day that Warner Bros., with Focus Features’ Rogue Pictures division, were planning on remaking the scariest film ever made- The Exorcist. Word had it that a script was written and things were progressing. But is this true? What is really going on? After you wipe the beads of sweat off your face read on…
It was only a matter of time until the ridiculous rumor of The Exorcist being remade was knocked cold. Fango writes,

Now a source at Rogue has told us that they’ve heard absolutely nothing about the company being involved in such a project. In addition, a first-draft script was said to have been recently completed by Jim (Anaconda) Cash—who, a few readers have pointed out to us, died nearly five years ago.

Good news, I’m starting to appreciate some of the remakes, but ‘Exorcist’ would not have been one of them…
