EW shared the first official look at James Wan’s The Conjuring 2, in which paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) travel to 1977 England to help single mom Peggy Hodgson and her four children, particularly daughter Janet (played by Madison Wolfe).

“The haunting that afflicted the Hodgson family is probably one of the most documented paranormal cases in the world,” says director James Wan, who visited the Enfield borough of London where the supernatural activity took place.

The Conjuring sequel, in theaters June 10, 2016, is said to open with The Amityville Horror case. After, the sequel will tell of the infamous “Enfield Poltergeist,” which took place at a council house in Brimsdown village, borough of Enfield, England during the late 1970s.

Rounding out the cast are Frances O’Connor (“The Missing”) as the single mom, with newcomers Lauren Esposito, Patrick McAuley and Benjamin Haigh as her children; Maria Doyle Kennedy (“Orphan Black”); Simon Delaney (“Roy”); Franka Potente (“The Bridge”); and Simon McBurney (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation).

In addition to directing the film, Wan wrote the screenplay with Carey Hayes & Chad Hayes, and David Leslie Johnson.

      The UK 3 part series this year with Timothy Spall was very good, i hope this version differs slightly.

      • Siobhan Sands

        I really enjoyed it too! It felt like they didn’t know how to end it. I’m worried that this one will be just the usual Exorcism movie though and end exactly the same as the first conjuring movie. Lets hope not :)

    Looks promising! I like the 70s style. Let’s hope part two is going to be as good as the first one!
