The Last Exorcism was really overlooked. It was one of the few found footage films of that time that carried any weight. Now it appears rumors are swirling concerning the sequel. We know this much thanks to Bloody Disgusting:
“The sequel follows Nell (Ashely Bell) who, six months after the first film’s events, has moved to a halfway house only to realize that the demon that has ruined her life is still after her! Without giving anything away, the sequel takes an interesting romantic approach that’s spun around Nell’s new boyfriend, Chris (actor yet to be named). A subplot is that Bell is also targeted by a group of rogue Reverends who mean to kill her. The twist is said to be something never before seen in an exorcism film.”
Ashley Bell returns as Nell Sweetzer, the possessed young girl, and Ed Gass-Donnelly is on board as the director. We can expect to see this one late in the year. Production is currently set in New Orleans.
