Meadows Scares Up Rights for Beware the Devil


More exorcism fun on the way

Filmmaker Shane Meadows (Dead Man’s Shoes) is going to raise a lil’ hell with his next film, Beware the Devil.

He tells Empire Magazine, “It’s based on a book of the same name, based on the life of a guy who, by getting involved with Ouija boards and the occult by trying to disprove it, trying to take the piss out of it, got possessed, had to be exorcised, and later became an exorcist himself. The guy it happened to has died, but his son’s a novelist, and he helped him turn it into a book before he passed away, and now I’m working with him to turn it into a film.”

Beware the Devil: A True Story of Deliverance was written by Robert Lee and published in 1983. Meadows currently has Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee on the film festival circuit.

Devil is just one a few exorcism films in the works. Eli Roth is currently overseeing the progress of Cotton, directed by Daniel Stamm.
