The 1973 film, about a young girl who is possessed by a demon, was directed by William Friedkin and based on William Blatty's book of the same name.

Now, 36 years after the movie's release, the author reveals a small screen version is in the works - and Friedkin has agreed to take charge.

Blatty refuses to go into further detail, but tells horror film magazine Cemetery Dance, "Billy Friedkin has agreed to direct."

The Exorcist film landed 10 Oscar nominations when it was released, winning Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound.
