It’s too bad-ass a concept for one movie, so Scorpio Film
Releasing is sequelizing one of its most popular titles, THE DISCO EXORCIST
(pictured), with THE BROTHER OF THE DISCO EXORCIST. We just got the word on the
movie, which is slated for production this fall.
Once again directed by Richard Griffin, scripted by Fango
scribe Tony Nunes and produced by Ted Marr, BROTHER OF THE DISCO EXORCIST is
set in the early 1980s and focuses on Roman Romanski (to be played by Jamie
Dufault from Griffin’s currently shooting MURDER UNIVERSITY), brother of THE
DISCO EXORCIST’s hero Rex Romanski. The plot is being kept under wraps for now,
but Scorpio promises that BROTHER will be “a riotous ride of horror/comedy and
disco-new-wave sleaze with a punk-tinged chaser. The sequel also promises to
take shameful advantage of its 1980s setting and blend bloody, violent horrors
with the rampant sexuality of the first film.”
Griffin comments further, “Due to the amazing success of THE
DISCO EXORCIST, we have decided to make [Scorpio’s] first sequel. It was really
important to us that THE BROTHER OF THE DISCO EXORCIST not be a carbon copy of
the original—a mistake many sequels make—but a movie that could truly stand on
its own. Tony’s concept for the sequel is so insanely original, I know people
will love it even if they haven’t seen the original.” Those who missed the
first DISCO EXORCIST on its initial release will have another chance when a new
DVD arrives from Wild Eye Releasing later this spring.
