Not too long after it was confirmed that Warner Brothers and New Line Cinema’s The Conjuring series was officially branching with the spin-offs Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation, The Nun, and The Crooked Man, it’s been confirmed that a third movie in the series will be made.
Deadline has revealed that The Conjuring 3 now has its writer – David Leslie Johnson, one of the writers that worked on The Conjuring 2. James Wan will be producing the film alongside Peter Safran, as both have been involved with the franchises since its inception.
While it hasn’t been revealed what the movie will be about, previous statements suggest that the story won’t involve a haunted house this time around. The three movies in the series have made just shy of $900M on low budgets, making the series an incredibly lucrative effort for Warner Bros. and New Line and justifying their willingness to expand the setting into a full-fledged shared universe.
The Conjuring, Annabelle, and The Conjuring 2 are all available on home video formats.
Annablle: Creation scares its way into theaters on August 11, 2017, featuring a cast that includes Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson, Philippa Coulthard, Grace Fulton, Lou Lou Safran, Samara Lee, Tayler Buck, Anthony LaPaglia, Miranda Otto, Mark Bramhall, Adam Bartley, Alicia Vela-Bailey, Lotta Losten, and Joseph Bishara.
10 Reasons Behind The ‘Aquaman’ Hype
If I went back in time five or 10 years and told myself that Black Panther and Aquaman would be my most anticipated superhero movies of 2018, I would have said, “Ahhhh!” because time traveling is freaky. But I would also have been quite surprised about the movies, too. The former I knew only in passing and the latter by the frequent jokes made about him. We here at Heroic Hollywood previously talked about what got us most excited about Black Panther. But we haven’t yet talked about the positive developments behind-the-scenes of Aquaman that have turned the film into an unexpectedly-anticipated blockbuster.
Aquaman is the next DCEU ready for production, gearing up for filming to begin in April in Australia. Of course, the character played by Jason Momoa, a Hawaiian of mixed descent, has already debuted in video and photographs in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad respectively. The king of Atlantis gets his proper introduction in Justice League, coming this November. But its his solo feature, directed by James Wan, that has really grabbed my imagination. The superhero’s story intertwines many great comic book and genre tropes, from the Shakespearan family drama to civilizational clashes to the tragic origin stories. He’s is the first big-screen water superhero. As fascinating as space is, I can’t help but be as fascinated more by the mysterious blue depths.
