Deadline is reporting that Morgan Creek Productions is looking to sell off the domestic rights to its library of films, although it plans to retain the remake rights to five in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Major League, Young Guns, Flying Tigers and The Exorcist.
“I’m selling the library strictly for economic reasons,” said Morgan Creek CEO Jim Robinson. “It will go back into the company to fund more production. We have a number of properties that we are looking to move forward on.”
Asked whether that could include remakes of the aforementioned titles, Robinson confirmed that ideas are currently being tossed around for new versions of The Exorcist, Ace Ventura and The Exorcist, although it would appear that the projects are in their very earliest stages at this point.
