The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It has been confirmed by New Line as the title of the third movie in the Conjuring franchise and one we’re happy to report; it’s obviously so much better than the oft-touted and boringly bland The Conjuring 3.
Previously, Co-star Patrick Wilson commented on the latest sequel, which began production in June in Atlanta, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter:
“The process [of making Conjuring 3] was fantastic, and it’s a much different feel,” Wilson stated. “It’s still the same bones; it’s still very much Ed and Lorraine. Again, we are pushing our characters to places they haven’t gone, but the film will be a really nice addition because it’s definitely a different beast. Pun intended.”
Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson return as Lorraine and Ed Warren. Story-wise, The Conjuring 3 is apparently about a man on trial for murder who claims he was possessed by a demon. However, there are rumours of a werewolf involved. Perhaps it’s the “beast” that Wilson is referring to?
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is a 2020 American supernatural horror feature film directed by Michael Chaves (The Curse of La Llorona; short: The Maiden). James Wan returns as co-producer alongside Peter Safran for his Atomic Monster production company.
New Line Cinema had previously announced that David Leslie Johnson (The Walking Dead; Dungeons & Dragons; Red Riding Hood; Orphan) is the lead writer for the third outing in The Conjuring franchise – he co-wrote the previous entry, which grossed $320 million worldwide..
Although critics – including us – were generally unimpressed, The Nun (2018) went on to be the most successful entry in The Conjuring universe so far, with worldwide takings at a whopping $335,711,735. Jump scares are perhaps all that audiences want nowadays?
