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. Filming is taking place in Romania.
It wasn’t too long ago that we learned of Demián Bichir being added to the cast of THE NUN playing a priest named Father Burke. His character will be dispatched by Rome to investigate the mysterious death of a nun in the film.
We have now learned that Taissa Farmiga will be playing this dead nun that Father Burke investigates. It is unclear if she will play THE Nun in THE NUN.
Farmiga is no stranger to Horror as she has appeared on AMERICAN HORROR STORY for some seasons as well as THE FINAL GIRLS.
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.
