The release date for Universal's new Exorcist movie from Doctor Sleep helmer Mike Flanagan has been unveiled.

The pic from Blumhouse and Morgan Creek will attack theaters on Friday the 13th — March 13, 2026. 

It is described as a “radical new take” on the venerable horror franchise that has been disrupting sleep since 1973. 

While any potentially head-spinning plot details are being kept under wraps, the filmmaker and producers say their new movie is not a sequel to any previous Exorcist movie and that it charts a new course for the legendary franchise. 

The previous movie in the franchise, "The Exorcist: Believer", wasn't a hit at the Box Office and grossed just $65.5M U.S./Canada and $136.2M worldwide. That was after NBCUniversal, Peacock and Blumhouse bought the rights from Morgan Creek back for $400M in July 2021. David Gordon Green, the director of that movie, withdrew from the next installment.

The new pic will be produced by Trevor Macy on behalf of Intrepid Pictures and Flanagan via his new Red Room Pictures banner, with John Scherer working on the pic on behalf of Intrepid.

The project marks the fourth team-up between Flanagan and Blumhouse. He wrote and directed "Oculus" (2013), "Hush" (2016), and "Ouija: Origin of Evil" (2016). Along with The Shining-inspired Doctor Sleep, Flanagan has written and directed such movies as "The Haunting of Hill House", "Midnight Mass", and "Gerald’s Game" along with last year’s Netflix miniseries "The Fall of the House of Usher."
