Untitled exorcism project: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Campbell Scott, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Jennifer Carpenter are joining the cast of Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment's untitled exorcism project.
Scott Derrickson is directing the horror thriller that was formerly known as "The Exorcism of Anneliese Michel."
The movie is based on true events involving the Catholic Church officially recognizing the demonic possession of an 18-year-old German college freshman. The young woman died during her exorcism, and a priest stood trial for causing her death. The script, written by Derrickson and Paul Harris Boardman, unfolds "Rashomon"-style, with different points of view recounting the events.
