Why hasn’t the neverending stream of content material stuffed the gaping void in my life but?!
Nicely, you’re not incorrect to anticipate it. In any case, the real-life paranormal investigators that the horror franchise is predicated on—Ed and Lorraine Warren—have printed many extra accounts of their supernatural encounters. The fabric is there! Past that, the Conjuring movies have a status for latching on to a memorable object or villain and creating a complete new spin-off movie collection round that. Take the Annabelle doll from the primary Conjuring, which led to Annabelle (2014), Annabelle: Creation (2017), and Annabelle Comes Dwelling (2019).
Right here’s what we all know to this point about the potential of The Conjuring 4, in addition to different upcoming movies in The Conjuring universe.
Will there be one other Conjuring sequel? Will there be The Conjuring 4?
There is no such thing as a official phrase about The Conjuring 4 from New Line Cinema, The Conjuring creator James Wan, or anybody else. However that actually doesn’t imply it is best to rely one other film out. To date, The Conjuring franchise has been an enormous success for New Line Cinema. It’s very doable that if The Conjuring: The Satan Made Me Do It does properly in theaters and on HBO Max, that New Line will need one other.
However would Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga be keen to return to the roles of Ed and Lorraine Warren? Farmiga reportedly informed Empire that she is on board. “Oh my God, I’d like to [continue],” she mentioned. “It’s attention-grabbing, now we have to up the worry in each. Demonology is already so high-pitched and operatic.”
Wilson agreed, and likewise mentioned he was recreation. “We always wish to push these characters. I wish to – for no different purpose than I’d wish to preserve enjoying reverse Vera.”
Will there be extra motion pictures within the Conjuring universe?
Most likely! Nevertheless, nothing is about in stone but. At present, there are at the very least two extra motion pictures within the Conjuring universe within the works: An untitled sequel to The Nun; and a brand new spin-off film known as The Crooked Man.
The final we heard about The Nun sequel was in 2019, when screenwriter Akela Cooper (The 100, Luke Cage) signed on to put in writing the script. The movie is about to be produced by The Conjuring creator James Wan’s firm, Atomic Monster and Peter Safran’s The Safran Firm. However no different particulars have been launched.
As for The Crooked Man, plainly the movie—meant a spin-off in regards to the titular character seen in The Conjuring 2—has been languishing in growth. In 2018, producer Peter Safran informed CinemaBlend, “We’re nonetheless engaged on the script for it. The bar is about very excessive for the films that we wish to make in The Conjuring Universe, and till we get to that place we’re not involved in placing one among these on the market into the universe. I nonetheless assume The Crooked Man may very well be a really attention-grabbing and completely different story.”
A 12 months later, Safran told ComicBook.com that The Crooked Man had taken a again seat to The Nun, because of viewers curiosity.
“After we did Conjuring 2, all of us thought Crooked Man can be the following one out the gate. We simply cherished it. It was only a nice character. As an alternative, the viewers was so fascinated by the nun,” Safran mentioned. “It was clear that that, in truth, must be the following one. It’s not that we received’t do Crooked Man, however you form of must stability out [the franchise]. I’m certain that now we have concepts of what we wish to do past this, from the artifact room, however I think that we’ll in all probability […] The viewers will inform us precisely what we must be doing.”
Whereas Safran didn’t say The Crooked Man was not taking place, it sounds prefer it’s not a high precedence for the Conjuring franchise in the intervening time. We’ll simply have to attend and see!
