Mike Flanagan’s ‘Exorcist’ Movie Sets Appropriately Spooky 2026 Release Date

Friday the 13th seems like a nice day for an exorcism, right? Universal has set an appropriately spooky date for their new Exorcist movie from director Mike Flanagan, per Deadline.

The new Exorcist movie from Blumhouse and Morgan Creek has been dated for theatrical release on March 13, 2026, an appropriately spooky and fitting Friday the 13th.

While plot details are currently under wraps,  the new film will tell an all-new story set in The Exorcist universe and is not a sequel to David Gordon Green‘s The Exorcist: Believer. Plans for that trilogy are no longer moving forward. Flanagan’s feature is said to be a radical new take for the franchise.

Flanagan previously said in a statement, “The Exorcist is one of the reasons I became a filmmaker, and it is an honor to have the chance to try something fresh, bold, and terrifying within its universe. Reuniting with my friends at Blumhouse, with whom I’ve made some of my favorite pieces of work, only makes this more exciting.”

The film will be produced by Trevor Macy on behalf of Intrepid Pictures and Flanagan via his new Red Room Pictures banner. John Scherer will also be working on the film on behalf of Intrepid. This film marks the fourth collaboration for Flanagan and Blumhouse; he wrote and directed Oculus (2013), Hush (2016) and Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016), all also produced by Macy, the latter which was recently featured in Blumhouse’s Halfway to Halloween AMC Film Series.

Stay tuned for additional details on this new direction for Mike Flanagan’s Exorcist movie as they arrive.
