By the very nature of the title of this film, should there really be a sequel?? In the same sense isn’t THE NEVERENDING STORY false advertising? Any who …
According the their IMDb.com page (and we know how accurate IMDb.com is), THE LAST EXORCISM 2 has pretty much completed it’s casting. The sequel is directed by Ed Gass-Donnelly and written by Donnelly and Damien Chazelle. If you remember in the first film, Nell (Ashley Bell) was possessed by a demon named Abalam who spoke through her. Now apparently said demon has a face… actor Colby Boothman-Shepard. No word yet on whether Shepard will be spending some long hours in the make-up chair or if he’s gonna be just another possessed soul. Also joining the cast are Judd Lormand, Andrew Sensenig, Spencer Treat Clark, and David Jensen.
THE LAST EXORCISM 2 is currently in post production and is expected to drop some time in late 2012 or early 2013. Here’s the plot crunch:
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 (Spencer Treat Clark). 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.
