Director withdraws and announces withdrawal due to changes

Foreign media reports indicate that “Exorcist: Fraudsters” has undergone significant changes, as it is now on January 31st, Beijing time. This follows the withdrawal of director David Gordon Green and the search for new candidates by Universal and Blumhouse. The film was also withdrawn from its original plan of April 18, 2025.

Last year, the first part of “The Exorcist: The Believer” was released but failed to perform well, earning $136 million globally. Universal spent $400 million copyright on this series and planned to create three new films to follow up the previous one.

The cast includes Alan Bostin, the original lead actor, who returns to play the mother of a child possessed by demons named Chris MacNeil. Leslie Odom Jr. plays the father of another child taken in by evil spirits, while Ann Tang (“The Story of the Servant”) stars as her daughter.

In 1973, William Friedkin directed the film, while William Peter Bratti adapted it from his 1971 novel of the same name. The novel was inspired by the 1949 Roland Doy exorcism and depicted a 12-year-old girl who was believed to be demon-possessed. Her mother desperately sought medical attention for her daughter, and the Roman Catholic Church invited two priests to perform the exorcism in front of Heaven.

Starring Alan Bernstein, Max von Seido, Jason Miller, Lee J. Valley, and Linda Beria, a series of possessed children’s films were produced from the late 1960s to mid-1970s.

It has been nominated for ten Oscars, including Best Sound and Best Adapted Screenplay, and is the first horror to be nomined for Best Picture. It also grossed more than $441 million globally, making it one of the top grossing films in history.

The exorcist has become a cultural shock and is included in the National Film Register’s top 100 horror movie moments, ranking third.

The narrative centers on Father Rankist Merlin, played by Max von Sido, who stumbles upon silver Roman Catholic circular jewelry and an ornate stone amusoleum. Meanwhile, at Georgetown University in Washington D.C., Father Damien Callas (played by Jason Miller) developed doubts about his beliefs while dealing with his mother’s dementia. His friend Father Joseph Dale also attempts to reconcile their mutual aggravating feelings.

While filming a movie near her temporary residence in Georgetown, actress Chris McNeill (played by Alan Bernstein) noticed an unusual phenomenon happening to her daughter Liken (portrayed by Linda Beria). Chris initially thought it was due to the child’s puberty, but after receiving medical advice, she decided to conduct X-rays and later found out that Liker’S temporal lobe had been affected.

In the past, Jack McGonagall played film director Booker Dunning when he visited Chris’s house. He was found dead on the stone steps next to the house, which made it creepy. Lieutenant Kinderman, played by Lee Valley, investigates the situation and informs Father Karas that Director Dunnen’S head had been severed to his back. Kindermann instructed Chris to return and inquire about the matter when Liken gets better. Licen attacked Chris and her face were assaulted shortly after Kindermen left.

After being advised by doctors to seek a priest for exorcisms, Chris confided in Father Karas that Licon was essentially claiming to be ill.

As an experienced exorcist priest, the church opted to let Merlin preside over the exorcism, and with Karas’ help, they attempted to read out the Bible and expel the demon from Licon’s body. The devil refused to be underestimated and began to curse, threaten, ridicule, harm the priest (including one who had almost died when his mother vanished), while Karasie was advised by Merlin to take a break for ten minutes.

Upon returning to Licon’s room, Karas discovered that Merlin had already died of heart disease, which was not an immediate threat. He attempted to save him using CPR, but the demon inside Liken was too proud and proud of their role in saving lives.

The arrival of Father Dale at the stone steps brought him great sadness as he mourned the death of Karas. Liken returned to her previous life and did not recall any paranormal activity. Chris intends to take her daughter away from Georgetown University, completely forgetting this special moment. Before they leave, they reflect on their former home in Washington.
