Evil spirits are apparently a renewable energy, as there is another "Conjuring" movie on the way.
Deadline reports that New Line Cinema is working on "The Conjuring 3," with "Conjuring 2" writer David Leslie Johnson on board to pen a sequel in the hit horror movie franchise. However, original "Conjuring" director/writer/producer James Wan probably won't return to sit in the director's chair.
"The Conjuring" movies follow paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) as they help families experiencing hauntings, evil spirits, and other poltergeist-like activity.
"Conjuring 3" would be the seventh film in the burgeoning, successful franchise. In addition to the two original flavor movies, it has yielded the spinoffs "Annabelle," "Annabelle: Creation," "The Nun," and "The Crooked Man" (which is in development).
Wan himself is likely too busy to direct "The Conjuring 3," as he is currently in production on "Aquaman," which is due in theaters in 2018.
In 1977, paranormal investigators Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren come out of a self-imposed sabbatical to travel to Enfield, a borough in north London. There, they meet Peggy Hodgson, an overwhelmed single mother of four who tells the couple that something evil is in her home. Ed and Lorraine believe her story when the youngest daughter starts to show signs of demonic possession. As the Warrens try to help the besieged girl, they become the next targets of the malicious spirit. Read More
