The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It opened in theaters and on HBO Max as we speak, marking the eighth installment within the Conjuring franchise. But eight films simply isn’t sufficient for you, is it? No, you’re most likely already questioning: Will there be one other Conjuring sequel? When does The Conjuring 4 come out? Why hasn’t the neverending stream of content material crammed the gaping void in my life but?!
Well, you’re not flawed to count on it. After all, the real-life paranormal investigators that the horror franchise relies on—Ed and Lorraine Warren—have revealed many extra accounts of their supernatural encounters. The materials is there! Beyond that, the Conjuring movies have a fame 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 Home (2019).
Here’s what we all know to this point about the opportunity 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 isn’t any official phrase about The Conjuring 4 from New Line Cinema, The Conjuring creator James Wan, or anybody else. But that definitely doesn’t imply it is best to depend one other film out. So far, The Conjuring franchise has been a large success for New Line Cinema. It’s very potential that if The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It does properly in theaters and on HBO Max, that New Line will need one other.
But would Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga be prepared to return to the roles of Ed and Lorraine Warren? Farmiga reportedly advised Empire that she is on board. “Oh my God, I’d love to [continue],” she stated. “It’s interesting, we have to up the fear in each one. Demonology is already so high-pitched and operatic.”
Wilson agreed, and additionally stated he was sport. “We constantly want to push these characters. I would like to – for no other reason than I would want to keep playing opposite Vera.”
Will there be extra films within the Conjuring universe?
Probably! However, nothing is about in stone but. Currently, there are at the very least two extra films within the Conjuring universe within the works: An untitled sequel to The Nun; and a new spin-off film referred to 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 write 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 Company. But no different particulars have been launched.
As for The Crooked Man, plainly the movie—supposed a spin-off in regards to the titular character seen in The Conjuring 2—has been languishing in improvement. In 2018, producer Peter Safran advised CinemaBlend, “We’re still working on the script for it. The bar is set very high for the movies that we want to make in The Conjuring Universe, and until we get to that place we’re not interested in putting one of these out there into the universe. I still think The Crooked Man could be a very interesting and different story.”
A 12 months later, Safran told ComicBook.com that The Crooked Man had taken a again seat to The Nun, due to viewers curiosity.
“When we did Conjuring 2, we all thought Crooked Man would be the next one out the gate. We just loved it. It was just a great character. Instead, the audience was so fascinated by the nun,” Safran stated. “It was clear that that, in fact, should be the next one. It’s not that we won’t do Crooked Man, but you kind of have to balance out [the franchise]. I’m sure that we have ideas of what we want to do beyond this, from the artifact room, but I suspect that we’ll probably […] The audience will tell us exactly what we should be doing.”
While 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 mean time. We’ll simply have to wait and see!
