The PG-13 film, budgeted at $1.6 million, grossed $62.5 million worldwide and starred Patrick Fabian ("Big Love," "Veronica Mars") as the Rev. Cotton Marcus, who brings a documentary crew to chronicle his final exorcism on a remote Louisiana farm.

Chazelle's credits include the spec script "Grand Piano," a thriller with a Hitchcockian twist about a classical pianist; Chazelle's first spec script, "The Claim," which follows a single father attempting to rescue his kidnapped daughter; and "Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench," a feature that debuted in 2009 at the Tribeca Film Festival that Chazelle wrote and directed.
