If it's crap ... We'll tell you
As yet another example of why you shouldn't ever title your projects with any kind of definite statement like "last" or "final", Studio Canal has hired scribe Damien Chazelle to pen a sequel to last year's surprise hit 'The Last Exorcism'. With any luck, they'll call it something equally entertaining like 'The Last LAST Exorcism... Really' or 'The Next-to-Last Exorcism' (I'm looking at you "Final" Destination...).
The original film was directed by Daniel Stamm and starred Patrick Fabian as an Evangelical preacher who takes a documentary film crew with him to his last exorcism to expose the whole process as a fraud once and for all. However, things don't work out quite the way he'd hoped in the "found footage" horror film. The decision to make a second installment had to be a no-brainer for the studio - shot for a remarkably tiny 1.6 million dollars, the film grossed nearly $63 million dollars worldwide. With that kind of profit margin, you'd have to literally hate money to not make a sequel (or possibly be named Brewster).
Chazelle - a relative newcomer - has only written one produced film (2009's indie 'Guy and Madeleine on a Park Bench'), but his first spec script 'The Claim' was featured in Hollywood's 2010 Black List (an annual list of hot, yet un-produced scripts) and he has several other scripts in various stages of development across the industry.
