Bill Moseley’s ‘Possession Experiment’ Sold to Momentum Pictures (EXCLUSIVE)

Momentum Pictures has bought rights to the exorcism movie “The Possession Experiment,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The film stars Chris Minor (“Edge”), Jake Brinn (“Glimpse”), Nicky Jasper (“Nocturne”) with KT Fanelli (“Pretty Bad Girls”) and Bill Moseley, best known for horror credits including “House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Devil’s Rejects” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.”

Scott B. Hansen directs from a Mary J. Dixon script in which a student (Minor), who has always been drawn to the supernatural, decides to explore the dark world of exorcisms as a topic for his final world theology class project. Teamed with three classmates, the group investigates a multiple homicide that they eventually discover was an exorcism gone horribly wrong.

The student becomes obsessed with the event, and in a strange turn of events, decides the only way to research this topic is to undergo an exorcism himself.

Todd Slater (“The Truth About Lies”) is the producer. Executive producers are Bob Winegard and T. Anthony Jones.

“’The Possession Experiment’ is a film that takes audiences for a ride,” said Momentum’s Ian Goggins. “Bill Moseley has a great following in the horror-genre community with films like ‘Halloween’ and ‘The Devil’s Rejects,’ so we are confident fans and enthusiasts alike will be thrilled to see this new project.”

The deal was negotiated on behalf of Momentum Pictures by Sejin Croninger for Entertainment One and Todd Slater of Blue Fox Entertainment on behalf of the filmmakers.
