Nearly forty years after "The Exorcist" first hit theaters, "Martha Marcy May Marlene" director Sean Durkin has revealed that he's planning to turn the horror film into a ten-episode television series.
Durkin's version of "The Exorcist" follows the events leading up to the demonic possession and the after-effects of how a family copes with it. The series will show the desperate family turning to the church after medical and psychiatric explanations fail. Father Damien Karras is then finally brought in to attempt the exorcism.
Roy Lee (The Departed, The Ring) is on board to produce and major networks are already expressing interest in the series, despite the face that it won't be officially shopped around for a few more weeks.
