The Conjuring is headed towards being the franchise with the most spin-offs in history. There is possibly another spin-off on its way. And no, I’m not talking about Annabelle 2: Creation or The Nun.
Annabelle: Creation producer Peter Safran said something very interesting while talking with JoBlo recently. He said that it is a possibility that the “Crooked Man” from The Conjuring 2 may get a film of his own. “…I suspect a movie with him would be really really cool.” He continued, “…we have some interesting ideas for him. So we’ll see.”
The creepy long-legged entity, played by Javier Botet, was not CGI like many thought. That was just Botet in a skin tight suit. Safran explains, “None of it was CG. It was 100% practical. That actor just looks like that, we created an amazing wardrobe for him. Skin tight latex-basically suit.”
I could definitely see a whole film based on the character, he is creepy as hell. I would just hope that they would choose Javier Botet to reprise the role.
Botet has played may impressive roles. You may not have realized it because he was in costume, but you have seen him in many genre films including Alien: Covenant, IT, The Mummy, Don’t Knock Twice, The Other Side of the Door, Crimson Peak, Mama, and many, many more.
