Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
2013 saw the release of THE CONJURING which became a mega hit for New Line, so much so that it produced the spinoff ANNABELLE which opened in theaters back in October to great success as well.
THE CONJURING 2 was originally set to hit theaters on October 23rd 2015 but then the film was pushed back until sometime in 2016 and that slot was replaced with an untitled New Line Horror film. The reason for that change is to accommodate the return of James Wan, who was officially named Director for the sequel. Filming is expected to begin this summer sometime.
The script for THE CONJURING 2 was first written by Carey and Chad Hayes with Eric Heisserer coming to make changes as needed. We have learned that writer David Leslie Johnson (ORPHAN and WRATH OF THE TITANS) is coming onboard to rewrite the screenplay. Johnson is also known for his work on AMC's THE WALKING DEAD.
Back in November THR reported that the sequel possibly could have the title of THE CONJURING 2: THE ENFIELD POLTERGEIST which refers to a paranormal case that took place in London England. This however has still not officially been confirmed.
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are set for the sequel to reprise their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren.
The official release date for THE CONJURING 2 will be June 10, 2016.
