William Friedkin - William Friedkin Denies The Exorcist Tv Series Reports

Director William Friedkin has shot down reports his iconic horror film The Exorcist is set to be made into a TV show.
It was reported last month (May12) that the terrifying 1973 film, which featured Linda Blair as demonically possessed schoolgirl Regan MacNeil, was to be transformed into a 10-part series.
But Friedkin is adamant no such project is in the works, insisting the movie would not transfer successfully to TV.
He tells Digital Spy, "It's not happening. It's a load of b**locks. There's no television series of The Exorcist planned. It would be ludicrous. An exorcist a week?"
