Annabelle and the Nun got the spinoff treatment. Is the Crooked Man next?
Portrayed by Javier Botet (no, that wasn’t CGI) in James Wan’s The Conjuring 2, the so-called Crooked Man sure as hell made an impression in his limited appearance as a secondary antagonist. But will the character ever get his own movie?
Producer Peter Safran just answered that very question, as best he could, in a chat with Arrow in the Head.
“I think there’s something fascinating in the Crooked Man,” Safran told the site. “Maybe tonally he’s not as grounded as the Conjuring itself is and maybe that’s why some people felt it wasn’t what they were looking for in the Conjuring but I suspect a movie with him would be really really cool.”
He added, “I love the character, just things like the transformation from the dog into the Crooked Man and the way he walked. I just love what that character can be. We have some interesting ideas for him. So we’ll see.”
In the full chat, which we encourage you to read, Safran also noted that the Crooked Man proved to be a very polarizing figure, with some fans loving him and others hating him. Most who hated the character were under the impression that he was brought to the screen with some shoddy CGI, which couldn’t have been further from the truth.
What about you? Would you like to see a Crooked Man movie?
