Geena Davis Takes Lead In FOX’s “Exorcist”

Geena Davis has booked a starring role in FOX’s pilot for the upcoming TV series reboot of “The Exorcist”.

A modern reinvention of William Blatty’s 1971 book, the serialized psychological thriller series follows two very different men (Alfonso Herrera, Ben Daniels) tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession.

Davis will play Angela Rance, a regal and proud woman who is weighed down by stress who does everything she can to stay positive even though her family is currently struggling and she’s suffering nightmares about a demon. Brianne Howey, Hannah Kasulka, and Kurt Egyiawan co-star.

Jeremy Slater (“Fantastic Four”) penned and executive produces the series with Rupert Wyatt (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”) directing the pilot.
