Casting News for Exorcism of Anneliese Michel Movie !Posted by:
Campbell Scott, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Jennifer Carpenter are joining Laura Linney and Tom Wilkinson for Screen Gems' "The Exorcism of Anneliese Michel" movie.
The horror thriller was inspired by the Catholic Church's official recognition of the demonic possession of the 18-year-old German college freshman. Anneliese Michel died at the age of 23 during her exorcism, and a priest stood trial for causing her death.
The script, written by director Scott Derrickson and Paul Harris Boardman, unfolds "Rashomon"-style, with different points of view recounting the events. The film will start principal photography on November 16 in Vancouver.
