EXORCISM FOR HELLRAISER VETS
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment, which previously teamed on THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES and UNDERWORLD, are getting together again for THE EXORCISM OF ANNELIESE MICHEL. The movie will be directed by Scott Derrickson from a script by him and Paul Harris Boardman; the duo performed the same duties on HELLRAISER: INFERNO and also co-scripted URBAN LEGENDS: FINAL CUT. The film is based on a true case from 1976 surrounding the apparent demonic possession of a German college freshman, which the Catholic Church officially recognized. An exorcism was called for but the young woman died during the ritual, and the priest involved went on trial for her death. The movie will reportedly explore several points of view on the incident, in the style of Akira Kurosawa's classic RASHOMON.
