The Last Exorcism could be getting a sequel following its surprise box office success.

Director Daniel Stamm may direct from a script by up-and-coming writer Damien Chazelle, according to Heat Vision.

The film collected $62.5 million (£38m) globally, after being made from a shoestring budget of $1.8 million (£1.09m).

The Last Exorcism was a pretend documentary that follows a former exorcist who is keen to prove that possession is just mental illness - before he meets a young girl called Nell who may genuinely be possessed.

Andrew Gurland and Huck Botko wrote the script for the original low-budget horror, which starred Patrick Fabian, Ashley Bell and Iris Bahr.

Chazelle, 25, is to have his 'Black Listed' script The Claim made into a film. He also recently sold the rights to Grand Piano to the producer of Buried.

Grand Piano, described as similar to Hitchcock, is to be directed by Spanish helmer Eugenio Mira.
