Conjuring 2’s Nasty Nun To Return
Remember that demonic nun from The Conjuring 2? Well, it seems that she’s going to be sticking around for a while.
So the execs as New Line Cinema, the studio behind the film, figure a new spin off will generate even more box office bucks.
The Nun will be produced by James Wan, director of The Conjuring movies and Peter Safran, the series’ producer.
Curiously, the creepy nun didn’t even exist until 3 months before the film’s release. Originally, a horned demonic figure was the movie’s chosen villain, but antagonist, but Wan suddenly came up with the notion of a demonic nun and pitched the idea to New Line execs. They loved it, and green-lit a number of reshoots replacing the horned demon with the nun.
This certainly will not be the first spin off for the franchise. Annabelle, the devil doll which appeared during the opening scenes of the first film, starred in 2014’s Annabelle – a movie which churned up more than $250 million worldwide. An Annabelle sequel is currently slated for a 2017 release.
In a recent interview with IGN, Wan discussed the very likely The Conjuring 3 and said the next chapter should take place in the ’80s. Way too early to tell which haunting will be next, but there’s plenty of material to choose from as the Warrens, the paranormal investigators played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in the movies, investigated haunted locations over a period of many years. The first two chapters have both unfolded during the ’70s – so it would make sense to set the next movie during the following decade.
Since its release on June 10, The Conjuring 2, which centres around an allegedly true haunting in Enfield, North London, has grossed more than 100 million at the worldwide box office.
