On the week of the Blu-ray release of “The Exorcist”, author William Peter Blatty and director William Friedkin look to be teaming up again for an adaptation of Blatty’s most recent work “Dimiter” reports Shock Till You Drop.
The project is described as a psychological thriller with supernatural undertones set mostly in Jerusalem in the early 70’s. The story follows Paul Dimiter, a spy and possible suspect in Ho Chi Minh’s death a few years earlier. After escaping torture in Albania, he flees to the Holy City. Soon after comes strange events which he seems to be involved in.
Blatty says Friedkin is “eager” to get going on the project, but has previously talked about Friedkin’s future plans on several occasions, plans which don’t end up happening.
