Busy Screenwriter Tapped to Pen Another 'Last Exorcism'

Busy Screenwriter Tapped to Pen Another 'Last Exorcism'

Aug 23, 2011

Astute horror fans may recall that Daniel Stamm's The Last Exorcism was originally called Cotton -- the name of the main character in the found-footage sleeper hit -- but was changed to its official title once Lionsgate got involved with the distribution. That title may have helped the film to earn over $60 million worldwide (it's actually a pretty clever chiller, whatever the title), but it's about to cause no shortage of clever tweets. Yes, there will soon be a sequel to a film called The Last Exorcism, but producer Eli Roth is a pretty clever guy, so they'll probably come up with something sharp like "After the Last Exorcism."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the guys at Strike Entertainment have just hired busy young screenwriter Damien Chazelle to cook up another tale of ambiguous soul possession. No word yet on who'll be the one behind the camera (production is scheduled for this fall), but this should stand as a lesson to all who make horror flicks: avoid the words "last," "final," and (for heaven's sake) "requiem."
