James Wan (Fast & Furious 7) is returning to the director’s chair for The Conjuring 2 and also co-wrote the screenplay based on the same real-life case that inspired recent Sky TV series The Enfield Haunting.
The Conjuring 2 is set to go in front of cameras later this month and is currently set to be released on 20th June 2016.
