New Line’s Conjuring franchise is expanding once again. The spinoff to The Conjuring 2, The Nun, is moving forward, with production set to begin this May.
Director Corin Hardy tweeted a photo yesterday with the caption, “And so it begins…”
The film centers on the entity that appears as a nun who stalks Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) in The Conjuring 2. While in the 2016, true-story-inspired, hit features Lorraine battling the nun, the spinoff will come as a prequel, revealing the entity’s backstory.
Penned by horror heavy-hitters James Wan (Saw, Insidious, Aquaman) and Gary Dauberman (IT, Annabelle 2), The Nun will open in theaters nationwide on Friday July 13, 2018.
