We announced that principal photography has begun in Los Angeles on New Line Cinema’s The Conjuring 2, with James Wan (Saw, Insidious, Dead Silence, Furious 7) once again at the helm.
The supernatural thriller brings to the screen another real case from the files of renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren.
Reprising their roles, as previously reported, Vera Farmiga (Up In the Air, “Bates Motel”) and Patrick Wilson (the Insidious films), star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who, in one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.
Filming under the title of The Conjuring 2, 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 Madison Wolfe (“Zoo”) and 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.
Peter Safran, Wan and Rob Cowan, who previously collaborated on The Conjuring, are producing.
The film is set to haunt theaters on June 10th, 2016.
