In “The Exorcist: Believer,” two young girls find themselves under demonic possession. Chris MacNeil, who has some experience with these things, is called in to help. But what about Regan? Will she be making an appearance in the film? Green is playing it coy. “She came to set because she was an advisor on the movie,” the director said. “I was really lucky to have her read the script, but she was not interested in a significant role and stepping back into that.”
You’ll probably notice that Green specifies that Blair wasn’t interested in a “significant role.” Does that mean she has a small cameo, perhaps? Maybe, or maybe we’re reading too much into this. Blair reprised the part of Regan once before in the gonzo sequel “Exorcist 2: The Heretic,” and she parodied her most famous role in the comedy “Repossessed.” Whether or not she returns for “Believer” is a question we don’t have an answer for just yet. But I’m willing to bet that Green is trying to maintain some element of surprise here, and I wouldn’t be shocked if Blair pops up in the film in some capacity. We’ll know for sure when “The Exorcist: Believer” opens on October 6, 2023.
