There are a lot of nuns in this movie.
Up to this point we haven’t heard all that much about the plot for next year’s Corin Hardy-directed The Nun, the latest spinoff from The Conjuring franchise that’s currently shooting in Romania. All we’ve heard is that Demian Bichir is playing a priest named Father Burke who is dispatched by Rome to investigate the mysterious death of a nun, but today brings more details.
The story centers on a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania taking her own life, with a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret and confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun from “The Conjuring 2.”
Taissa Farmiga, Bonnie Aarons, Charlotte Hope, Jonas Bloquet and Ingrid Bisu also star.
Gary Dauberman wrote with James Wan. Wan and Peter Safran are producing.
The Nun arrives on July 13, 2018.
