'The Last Exorcism' Sequel Gets Director, Start Date, and R-rating; Star Ashley Bell to Return

The Collider:
As the beginning of January saw the box office smash, and subsequent fall, of the found-footage exorcism pic The Devil Inside, the sequel to another film in the “found-footage exorcism movie” genre is moving full speed ahead. We first heard movement on the follow-up to 2010’s The Last Exorcism last August, but now the sequel has a director, star, and new rating. Ed Gass-Donnelly (This Beautiful City) will direct the untitled sequel, which begins production next month in New Orleans, and instead of sticking with the original’s PG-13 rating, the sequel will be going R. Hit the jump for story details, and to find out what’s behind the rating switch.

This is a surprise seeing how there was so much controversy about The Devil Inside. I know it made a lot of money but people also came out of the movies saying it was aweful and not worth the money to go see it.

The first movie was a PG-13!? I'm 24 and couldn't stop thinking about the ending for ages...but then again I get obsessive about reading into demonic rituals etc. Can't wait for the sequel.

I really dug the first film. I remember skipping on it in theaters because I thought it looked pretty bad. The trailers didn't sell me on it. Then I rented it from Blockbuster and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

I'm not too shocked a sequel is on the way after the success of The Devil Inside, but I am surprised with the rating change. I'm always for R-rated horror, but the first did fine with its PG13 rating.

That surprised me too. I guess you need to get ready to see even more horror on this one.

Am I the only one that hated the end of the first one? I was really into it for most of the movie. Then it took this supernatural twist and just became all but awful. That ending ruined the movie for me.
