William Peter Blatty & William Freidkin To Team Up Again?


According to Rue Morgue Magazine the legendary team that brought us The Exorcist are teaming back together for a new project. This will be an adaptation of William Blatty's novel "Dimiter".

"Dimiter, a supernatural suspense thriller set mostly in Jerusalem, is a novel that's been out and around since mid-March. Billy Friedkin is eager to direct it as a film, which would be our one and only other teaming since The Exorcist," said Blatty.

This is awesome, now for them to recreate the magic that happened with The Exorcist will be no small task but just imagine the possibilities of what could happen, we shall see.

The Book Synopsis: "In 1973 Albania, Colonel Vlora (aka the Interrogator), the head of a team of torturers, questions the Prisoner, who the reader later learns is Paul Dimiter, an American clandestine agent referred to in some quarters of the world as 'legendary,' while in others as 'the agent from hell.' (Rumor has it Dimiter poisoned Ho Chi Minh while the Vietnamese leader was visiting Albania shortly before his death in 1969.) Dimiter escapes to Jerusalem, where he encounters a number of engaging characters, including a doctor of neurology, a sharp-tongued nurse, and a grief-stricken Israeli policeman. The complicated plot confounds until the isolated pieces of the psychological puzzle that's Dimiter match up and fall into place, revealing surprising truths."
