THE CONJURING 2 hype has really been building up for a while now. The film was originally set to hit theaters on October 23rd 2015 but then it was pushed back until 2016. The reason for that change was to accommodate the return of James Wan, who is directing the sequel.
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are reprising their roles of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
We have learned that production has officially wrapped for THE CONJURING 2. Wilson offered some bits about the film as he spoke with EW saying:
"James has pushed himself and pushed himself. A month ago we shot this one scene, and I said to him, 'Four movies with you, man, and this was the creepiest scene I’ve ever done.' It was so freaky and bizarre and strange — just get ready!"
"Without giving anything away, (Wan) wouldn't settle for the film ending with me giving an exorcism and then the witch goes away. We can't do that again, so we don't ... I love that they pushed the skepticism of it, I love that they pushed the Warrens' involvement, and it's awesome. And we stole from a couple real situations where the Warrens were confronted by skeptics, because James is real conscious of that. He knows that fans who want to believe will see the movies, but he knows there are a lot of skeptics out there, so why not show that? We probably had more fun shooting it than the first one. I love it; it was fantastic."
Director James Wan took to social media thanking his crew and all of the locals that were involved in the filming. He also shared the image below saying that THE CONJURING 2 will feature "some of the most sumptuous photography" of his films.
THE CONJURING 2 will tell the story of The Enfield Poltergeist which refers to a paranormal case that took place in London England. Set to be around Christmas time in the 1970's.
The cast is made up of Wilson and Farmiga, along with Frances O'Connor, Abhi Sinha, Patrick McAuley and Benjamin Haigh joining Lauren Esposito as her children, and Maria Doyle Kennedy; Simon Delaney; Franka Potente; and Simon McBurney.
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.
The official release date for THE CONJURING 2 will be June 10, 2016.
