THE CONJURING 2 was originally set to hit theaters on October 23rd 2015 but then the film was pushed back until 2016. The reason for that change was to accommodate the return of James Wan, who is officially named Director for the sequel.
Back in November we 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.
It appears that this rumor for the story to go this route is becoming a reality. Director James Wan spoke with ScreenCrush about FURIOUS 7 and mentioned THE CONJURING 2 saying:
"For this next one, it’s set in England and it has a very different vibe than the first movie. It still lives in the same world, but the location and the next case they have, has a different flavor to it. So I’m very excited.”
Wan further fueled the rumors of an Enfield Poltergeist storyline with the following Instagram post:
The script for THE CONJURING 2 was first written by Carey and Chad Hayes with Eric Heisserer coming to make changes as needed. Writer David Leslie Johnson (ORPHAN and WRATH OF THE TITANS) has the task of rewriting the screenplay. Johnson is also known for his work on AMC's THE WALKING DEAD.
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are set for the sequel to reprise their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren. Filming is expected to begin this summer sometime.
The official release date for THE CONJURING 2 will be June 10, 2016.
