Following the massive success of the Halloween reboot, it was certain that director David Gordon Green would get many new opportunities, or in this case, another old opportunity.

It seems Green is in talks to take on a sequel to the classic Friedkin film The Exorcist (one of my three favourite films ever, even though it still scares the crap outta me and I close my eyes at the subliminals) currently in the works at modern horror geniuses Blumhouse.

The most interesting thing here is that it is being reported as a sequel and NOT a reboot. We already know the series can be revisited to dazzling effect (Exorcist 1990 aka Exorcist III) and Green obviously has respect for classic horror properties having brought Michael Myers back after many many ropey sequels.
