[I 165w exorcist_goodevil I]In , Caleb Carr spoke in length about the conflict with Paul Schrader on EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING. He told us, " I can confirm that Paul Schrader's connection with the film has been concluded, by mutual agreement."
Now, in an official press release, production company Morgan Creek has confirmed this. "Morgan Creek Productions and director Paul Schrader have jointly announced that Schrader will no longer continue as director of EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING, the prequel to the 1973 Oscar-nominated film THE EXORCIST, due to creative differences... Mr. Schrader completed principal photography in Morocco and Rome in February of this year. The film is currently in post-production and is scheduled for release through Warner Bros. in early 2004."
Carr had stated in our interview, "Mr. Schrader has left us with a good amount of useable material which, when cut in with necessary reshoots, should make up a fine film; but in the future, I'd hope that he would have more respect for the work of others than to treat it as a tool with which to gain his private, unconnected, pragmatic goals."
EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING is still on track to be released in February 2004. No word yet on who will be replacing Schrader in the post-production process.
Special thanks to , the best site for all things EXORCIST-related for alerting us to this story.
