2022 has been quite a successful year for horror franchise revivals. Not only did we get the third entry of the new incarnation of Halloween, but even saw Scream return with a new sequel to quite the success. It’s been a good year for long-running horror franchises and The Conjuring is ready to expand upon its spinoff, The Nun.
The sequel to the 2018 blockbuster release was based on a story written by James Wann and directed by Corin Hard, who adapted it based on a script by Gary Dauberman. The sequel’s plot still remains under wraps, but Taissa Farmiga will reprise her role as Sister Irene, who witnessed the events from the first film alongside the priest played by Demián Bichir. She will be joined by Anna Popplewell and Katelyn Rose in the sequel.
Michael Chaves will direct the sequel after his work on The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, which is the seventh entry in the franchise and has made quite a splash at the box office. As of now, The Conjuring franchise has already passed $2 billion worldwide and is the highest-earning horror franchise of all time.
The scrapped is based on Akela Cooper, who also worked on M3GAN but the project has gone through some revisions by Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing. Currently, The Safran Company and Atomic Monsters are set to produce with Wan once again serving as a producer on the project alongside Peter Safran.
