Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
THE CONJURING 2 is a film that received mostly positive reviews, Fans were glad to see Ed and Lorraine Warren once again back in action. The James Wan directed film provided the fright as new entities including a ghostly nun took us to some frightful places. So much so that a spin-off movie was announced quite some time ago.
New Line Cinema is pushing forward for the additional spin-off which will be titled THE NUN, and will focus on the Horrifying antagonist from THE CONJURING 2. Filming is taking place in Romania.
We just recently learned that Taissa Farmiga had joined the cast and today we have learned that Bonnie Aarons has also officially joined that cast. She will be reprising the role of The Nun.
Demián Bichir will be playing a priest named Father Burke. His character will be dispatched by Rome to investigate the mysterious death of a nun in the film. Taissa Farmiga will be playing this particular dead nun that Father Burke investigates.
Corin Hardy (THE HALLOW) is directing THE NUN. He was previously chosen to direct THE CROW remake, but with that project now on hold he can place his focus on THE NUN.
The screenplay for THE NUN has been written by James Wan and Gary Dauberman. Wan and Peter Safran will serve as producers. The Nun character was played by Bonnie Aarons in THE CONJURING 2. It is not certain at this time if she will return to portray the role for the new film.
Friday July 13th, 2018 is the official release date for THE NUN.
