While he waits for The Crow to get out of development hell, Corin Hardy is going to be joining James Wan’s nightmarish Conjuring universe by taking the helm on The Nun.
Scripted by Gary Dauberman and James Wan, and produced by Wan and Peter Safran, the film gives front-and-center treatment to the demonic nun who menaced Vera Farmiga’s character throughout The Conjuring 2. This is the second spinoff, after Annabelle, which has a sequel bowing this summer. Deadline first reported the news.
Lights Out director David F. Sandberg is currently in post production on Annabelle 2, which he tells us “will be the Godfather II of creepy doll movies.” Set for release on August 11, 2017, we’re told that the film’s protagonist is going to be a nun who is worried that her orphans are becoming prey to an evil entity. Could this nun tie into the story of The Conjuring 2 and its forthcoming The Nun spinoff?
And what about a third Conjuring? I think it’s safe to assume a third is quickly going into development.
