The third movie of the Conjuring Universe is all set to begin production this June and will be based on a real life story.
James Wan is officially returning with another spine chilling horror flick and we can't keep calm! The Conjuring franchise is coming back with another Conjuring movie and according to Joblo, the much-awaited sequel which has been in the talks for quite some time now will begin its production this June in Atlanta and will be based on a true story which the director claims is the creepiest one yet. The Conjuring movies have always managed to appeal to the fans of horror scattered across the globe and after a long wait of two years, to the joy of the fans, the much-awaited sequel to Conjuring 2 is finally taking shape.
When the first Conjuring movie came out in 2013, it scared people so bad, they claimed the movie was the creepiest they've ever seen. The twisted and dark story of the movie crept people to the core, causing many to lose their sleep for days and the Warrens are coming back to spook people once again. The third installment in the Conjuring series and another addition to the Conjuring Universe will be based on Bill Ramsey's murder trial.
The infamous case of Bill Ramsey is believed to be the focus of the sequel. Bill believed that he was possessed and was visited by Ed and Lorraine Warren who conducted an exorcism on him. Spilling some beans about the movie, Wan told Bloody Disgusting, "All the Conjuring films are based on the case files, so they’re more based on the true story aspect of the real-life Warrens. I think that’s important. It’s important that the mothership stays true to the inspiration of the real people. The spinoffs are where we get to have more fun and do weird and wonderful crazy things. The mothership of it being the Conjuring films, we want it to come back to the real stuff."
“It’s not necessarily based on an artifact but it’s based on one of the Warrens’ case files. It’s this guy who was on trial for committing a murder. I think it’s the first time in America’s history where the defendant used possessions as a reason, as an excuse," he added. Wan said revealing the plot of the movie which seems a bit similar to the plot of the movie The Exorcism of Emily Rose where a man faced trials for killing a young woman, who he claimed was possessed and was killed by demons.
In the last few years, the movie series has not only secured a loyal fan base but also made Ed and Lorraine Warren a household name. One of the major reasons behind the success of the movie franchise is the fact that the movies are based on the real accounts of the famous demonologists and paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren who are the only demonologists approved by the Church.
What makes a scary story scarier? The fact that it is true and not mere fiction. Director James Wan is a genius who has very well identified what his audience wants. The stories of the Conjuring Universe have blended horror with human interest so cleverly, it compels a person to go watch them. It attracts their curiosity. And, well, according to the man himself, the third one isn't going to be any different.
Last year while promoting his superhero film Aquaman, Wan said, "We’ve been working hard on Conjuring 3. Of course, that is something that I am not neglecting. The Conjuring films are still the mothership and the mothership needs to be strong. [Laughs] The mothership needs to be strong for all these other jet fighters to shoot out of. So, we’re in the midst of working on the script, and still hashing [it] out. We want to make sure that the script is in a really good place. With how much people have loved the first two Conjuring, I don’t want to rush into the third one if possible.”
As for the cast, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will be resuming their roles as Ed And Lorraine Warren in the movie, who will also be seen in Annabelle 3, a spinoff of the Conjuring movies, which will be released next year. James Wan is producing Conjuring 3 and Michael Chaves, who directed The Curse of La Llorona will be directing the movie which is believed to hit the screens in late 2020. Who's excited?!
