Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
With THE CONJURING 2 having arrived into theaters to mostly positive reviews, fans are glad to see Ed and Lorraine Warren once again back in action. The James Wan directed film has been bringing 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 in full force for the additional spin-off which will be titled THE NUN, and will focus on the Horrifying antagonist from THE CONJURING 2. Production began on the film last month. Filming is taking place in Romania.
Not long ago we learned that Corin Hardy (THE HALLOW) was selected to direct THE NUN. Hardy was previously chosen to direct THE CROW remake, but with that project now on hold he can place his focus on THE NUN.
We have learned that Demián Bichir will star in THE NUN playing a priest named Father Burke, who is dispatched by Rome to investigate the mysterious death of a nun.
We will soon see Birchir in Ridley Scott’s ALIEN: COVENANT. He also appeared in Quentin Tarantino’s THE HATEFUL EIGHT. Birchir is also known for his role as Marco Ruiz from the TV series THE BRIDGE.
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. 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.
