Mike Flanagan’s Exorcist Remake Set to Launch in March 2026

Universal has finally set a release date for its new Exorcist movie by director Mike Flanagan, known for films like Doctor Sleep. The pict will hit theaters on Friday the 13th — March 13, 2026.

Excitement Surrounding the New Take

The film is being described as a “radical new take” on the classic horror franchise that has disturbed audiences since 1973. However, any potentially head-spinning plot details are being kept under wraps.

A Fresh Direction

The new movie is not a sequel to any previous Exorcist film and charts a new course for the legendary franchise. The last movie in the series, The Exorcist: Believer, struggled with just $136 million worldwide against massive expectations after NBCUniversal, Peacock, and Blumhouse bought the rights back from Morgan Creek for $400 million in July 2021.

A Steadfast Producer Team-Up

The upcoming project marks the fourth collaboration between Flanagan and Blumhouse. He previously wrote and directed Oculus (2013), Hush (2016), and Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016).

Noteworthy Anticipation

This time around, beleaguered fans of the previous installment have reasons to be optimistic. Jason Blum himself noted, I immediately responded to Mike’s new take on the world of The Exorcist and can’t wait for audiences to experience it.

Moreover, Anna Torv recently mentioned, I’m kind of blown away by the purity of his vision.

A Radical Leap from Past Works

The remarkable pivot from David Gordon Green—who directed The Exorcist: Believer—to Flanagan signifies a substantial shift of creative helm. Universal’s investment hints at significant confidence in this bold direction.
