The Exorcist is getting a TV series adaptation this fall on Fox. Loosely based on William Blatty's 1971 novel and the 1973 movie starring Linda Blair, it follows the sexy young Father Ortega (Alfonso Herrera of Sense8) as he investigates a demonic possession that's taken over the Rance family.
Although it does not yet appear that the show includes any nods to the original film's plot or its general '70s horror camp, the show does star Geena Davis as a Catholic mother. We can only hope that she channels her inner drama queen to give us some good old-fashioned Ellen Burstyn realness. Our fingers are crossed for some green projectile vomit action too.
Watch Geena Davis in the first trailer for Fox's The Exorcist:
