Priest Who Performs Exorcisms Signs Movie Deal
An Indiana priest who gained fame when he performed exorcisms on a local family has signed a movie deal that will tell the story on screen.
Reverend Michael Maginot of St. Stephen Martyr parish in Merrillville did not disclose the details of what was described as a "standard deal." Evergreen Media Holdings Executive Chairman Tony DeRosa-Grun closed the deal with Rev. Maginot. DeRosa-Grund produced "The Conjuring" which grossed $318M world wide.
Maginot signed with Evergreen because he felt the story would not be sensationalized. "The story is good as it is," Maginot said. "You don't need to go crazy with it." The Reverend also signed a deal with Zak Bagans, who is the host and executive producer of "Ghost Adventures" to make a documentary.
