Herrera, Daniels Set For “The Exorcist” Series

Alfonso Herrera (‘Sense8″) and Ben Daniels (“House of Cards”) are reportedly set to star in FOX’s drama series pilot based on William Blatty’s iconic 1971 book “The Exorcist” and its subsequent William Friedkin film adaptation.

Jeremy Slater (“Fantastic Four”) is penning this modern reinvention which turns the story into a serialized psychological thriller about two different men – the warm and selfless Father Tomas Ortega (Herrera) and the intense Father Marcus Lang (Daniels) – tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession and confronting the face of true evil.

Slater, James Robinson, David Robinson and Barbara Wall will executive produce for 20th Century Fox TV and Morgan Creek Productions.
