The Exorcism of Anneliese Michel: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment have scared up The Exorcism of Anneliese Michel, a horror thriller from writers Scott Derrickson and Paul Harris Boardman. Derrickson also is attached to direct.
A true story, the case of Michel is well known among those who study exorcisms. In 1976, the Catholic Church officially recognized the demonic possession of an 18-year-old German college freshman. During her exorcism, the young woman died, and a priest stood trial for causing her death. The script unfolds "Rashomon"-style, with different points of view recounting the events.
