Exorcist: The Beginning

John Frankenheimer was initially set to direct, but stepped down just before his death. He was replaced by Paul Schrader, who aimed for a psychological film and delivered what he described as "footage without any of the bloody violence the backers had wanted." The producers were unsatisfied with the completed film Schrader had presented them and fired him, replacing him with Harlin and hiring screenwriter Alexi Hawley to retool the previous script. Harlin re-filmed most of the film, with some new characters added and others deleted. The character of Father Francis, originally played by Gabriel Mann, had to be recast with D'Arcy because Mann had a scheduling conflict.
