The Conjuring 3 In Active Development

June 26, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Get ready for more ghostly scares from the Conjuring team. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. Pictures/New Line have begun developing a third film in the main franchise, with Conjuring 2 screenwriter David Leslie Johnson returning to write the film and James Wan producing with Peter Safran. Wan is not expected to direct the film, which will again focus on Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga’s Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Wan has previously said that the film would take place in the 1980s. The franchise has been one of the biggest horror successes in recent years, with each being critical and commercial hits while spawning several spinoffs including the forthcoming The Nun and the Annabelle films.

No release date has yet been set.
