Geena Davis

Fox

Geena Davis is coming back to TV to battle some demons. Not personal demons, actual demons. The Oscar winner will star in Fox's The Exorcist pilot as Angela Rance, E! News has learned.

The character, described as "naturally beautiful, regal and proud," is under a lot of stress and does everything to stay positive and keep her faith while her family struggles. She's also been plagued by nightmares about a demon, could that be what's really wrong here?

Fox's Exorcist is a modern reimagining of William Blatty's original 1971 book. The psychological thriller follows two very different men who take on a family's demonic possession case. Jeremy Slater wrote the script with Rupert Wyatt directing. Slater, Wyatt, Rolin Jones, James Robinson, David Robinson and Barbara Wall are executive producing.

Davis is no stranger to TV. She starred in the acclaimed Commander in Chief, The Geena Davis Show and recently Grey's Anatomy. On the big screen, Davis won an Oscar for The Accidental Tourist and was nominated for Thelma and Louise. Other beloved works include A League of Their Own, Beetlejuice, The Fly and The Long Kiss Goodnight.
