William Friedkin, the U.S. director behind the Oscar-winning movies "The Exorcist" and "The French Connection," is dismissive about the flood of superhero and sci-fi movies that have taken over today's box office.Now Friedkin reckons "the best work" for directors is on television, on U.S. cable and video-on-demand services that produce quality series such as "True Detective" and "House of Cards".He has spoken to Bette Midler about playing the part.He is also looking at turning another of his big films, "To Live and Die in LA," into a TV series, with different characters and plot. Friedkin, however, placed "Sorcerer" well above "The Exorcist" and "The French Connection" as he looked over his half-century career and 20 films.That movie, starring Roy Scheider, was the one that emerged closest to his original vision, he said, and dealt with a theme that he holds dear – fate.
