Last year’s Corin Hardy-directed The Nun was a box office success (despite critical negativity towards the film) – to date, it is the highest grossing installment in the entire Conjuring Universe. Therefore, it’s no big surprise a sequel would be in development.
Now we have learned, via Deadline, that screenwriter Akela Cooper is set to write the script for the next installment in the franchise. For anyone unaware of Cooper’s work, her previous credits include Netflix’s Luke Cage, American Horror Story, The 100, and Hell Fest.
The sequel is set to be produced by The Conjuring Universe godfather, James Wan, and producer Peter Safran.
Whilst you wait for the sequel, the upcoming Annabelle Comes Home is set to be released on 28th June, written and directed by Gary Dauberman.
