The movie reboot The Exorcist from the master of terror Mike Flanagan will hit theaters on March 13, 2026, Universal announced Tuesday.

Blumhouse and Morgan Creek’s plans for a trilogy of new Exorcist films were derailed by the poor, polarizing response to last year’s The Exorcist: Believer, directed by David Gordon Green. Last month, the filmmakers announced they would hand the reins of the franchise to Flanagan.

What will the new Exorcist movie be like?

Flanagan, whose credits include The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass, Gerald’s Game, Doctor Sleep and the new The Fall of the House of Usher, has created an entirely new narrative nightmare that is not a sequel to any previous, chart-topping Exorcist film. A new direction for the film franchise.

The film will be produced by Flanagan’s collaborating producer Trevor Macy (The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass) for Intrepid Pictures, by Flanagan for Red Room Pictures, and by Jason Blum (Five Nights at Freddy’s, M3GAN) for Blumhouse.

This Exorcist film will mark Flanagan’s fourth Blumhouse film. His previous Blumhouse titles were Oculus, Hush and Ouija: Origin of Evilall of them also produced by Macy.

When The Exorcist was released, based on the best-selling book by William Peter Blattyin 1973, changed culture forever and became the first horror film to be nominated for best picture.
