Schrader’s ‘Exorcist’ Taking on the ‘Sith’

ON

In an apparent effort to make sure as few people see Paul Schrader’s version of Exorcist: The Beginning as possible Warner Bros. has set a May 20th release date for the film resulting in a day after effect as Star Wars: Episode III, Revenge of the Sith will hit theaters one day before.

Variety carries the story and mentions that if Schrader had not taken his finished film to the Brussels Fantasy Film Festival last month for its world premiere the film would have most likely never seen the light of day.

The movie screened as Paul Schrader’s The Exorcist: The Original Prequel and has already been released in the Netherlands. Now Morgan Creek is leaning toward Dominion: A Prequel to the Exorcist for its theatrical release.
