Starry Eyes writers and directors Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch are set to direct a horror film called Exorcism Diaries for Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment.
Of course, the film is based on a true story that will be adapted from the book, The Real Story Behind the Exorcist: A Study of the Haunted Boy and Other True-Life Horror Legends from Around the Nation’s Capital by Mark Opsasnick.
The film tells the story of “a young woman, fresh out of rehab and looking to make amends, who discovers her family’s horrifying connection to the most famous exorcism of all time may be the cause behind her brother’s increasingly violent behavior.”
The film has been in development for years, and the initial draft of the script was written by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard, who wrote Oculus. Widmyer and Kolsch will rewrite and direct the feature.
