‘Conjuring’ Spinoff ‘The Nun’ Begins Pre-production

New Line Cinema continues to spin their Conjuring web into a massive universe.

The character of the Nun, who was a late addition to The Conjuring 2, was so popular she demanded a spinoff. It’s happening with Corin Hardy (The Hallow) at the helm, with New Line dating The Nun for release in theaters on Friday July 13, 2018.

Hardy tweeted from pre-production, while Bloody Disgusting learned filming begins in May.

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.

The Nun will be the fifth(!) film in the franchise, and will follow this summer’s Aug. 11 release of Annabelle 2.

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.” 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.

    Can you look into whether or not this is a prequel to VENOM for us. You know, just in case?

      Agreed! And please let us know of any spoilers from whatever movie that is currently in theaters, even if they don’t pertain to the article written.

      LOL

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Hallow (heard about it on BD). So I’m looking forward to see what does with this, maybe he’ll get the chance to give us take one The Crow reboot next.

    The nun was far and away the best part of Conjuring 2. I hope Hardy and company can keep her scary.

    • Valak

      I hope the great Bonnie Aarons return to the role, I’ll be disappointed if she isn’t involved.

  • REC03

    “will be the Godfather II of creepy doll movies.” this quote haunts my dreams. enough!

  • J Jett

    i love THE HALLOW. i think this nun movie is in good hands!

  • Wolf Kane

    The bitch creeped me out, definitely be seeing this one.

  • Michael Gevins

    These guys have a serious issue with nuns.

  • I hope they make a great movie because the nun is one of the scariest characters I’ve seen in a supernatural movie.

  • Prince Of Darkness

    I think The Nun should join the cast of The View. Think Whoopi would dare to retort her?

    Wan and his peeps certainly don’t mess around, they get shit made. If only the quagmire that is the F13 universe could be so streamlined.

    We all know this is going to be garbage, why pretend it won’t be? A spin off of a fast food horror like the Conjuring essentially means that this is Dollar Menu horror.

    It struck me as odd that The Nun gets her own spinoff because, as I interpreted it, she was just the human disguise used for the demon in The Conjuring 2. My opinion was formed by the end when the shadow of The Nun losing to Lorraine became a big demon with horns. I kinda liked that idea better, but hey, we’ll see.
