The Exorcist is scheduled to return on October 13th, 2023, whether ardent fans like it or not. The movie will be the first in a new trilogy, continuing a trend in Hollywood that aims to revive great movies in an effort to capitalise on prior successes. Anything can be relaunched, of course, provided the quality isn’t an issue, but certain movies are timeless masterpieces when it comes to trying to recapture or keep the original charm and integrity of a movie. The list of top classic films that will never be relaunched is provided below.
