Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
THE CONJURING 2 arrived into to theaters to mostly positive reviews. Fans were glad to see Ed and Lorraine Warren once again back in action. The James Wan directed film provided 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 has been preparing 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.
We have learned that Romanian actress Ingrid Bisu has officially joined the cast of THE NUN. She will play the role of Sister Oana.
Bisu has been acting for over ten years beginning with her debut in BLOODRAYNE. The actress has mostly worked in her home country of Romania, which is where filming on THE NUN is taking place.
The rest of the cast is made up of Demián Bichir, who will be playing a priest named Father Burke. His character will be dispatched by Rome to investigate the mysterious death of a nun in the film. Taissa Farmiga will be playing the dead nun named Sister Irene that Father Burke investigates. Jonas Bloquet as local villager named Frenchie, Charlotte Hope as the abbey’s Sister Victoria, and Bonnie Aarons, reprises her role as the Evil Nun from THE CONJURING 2.
“The story centers on a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania taking her own life, with a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret and confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun from “The Conjuring 2.”
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.
