What’s going on with Summit’s Exorcism Diaries? The script for the film, which was originally penned by Jay Baruchel and Jesse Chabot, has a new writer attached: Barbara Marshall. Marshall got her first break after writing 2012’s Black List script Peste.
While the plot of The Exorcism Diaries is being kept under wraps, we do know that the film is inspired by the book The Real Story Behind The Exorcist by Mark Opsasnick.
The original pitch, via HeatVision, goes a little something like this:
“[The story] centers on a reporter searching for the truth behind the most famous exorcism in history, but soon discovers that the real-life story is not quite finished. As a result, she finds herself in harm’s way of the same supernatural entity that she is chasing.”
Exorcism Diaries is being produced by Roy Lee, Sonny Mallhi and Doug Davison.
