With a trailer set to launch on Thursday, IGN has unveiled six images from the next instalment in The Conjuring Universe, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, featuring Ruairi O’Connor as Arne Johnson, Vera Farmiga as Lorraine Warren, Eugenie Bondurant as The Occulist, and Patrick Wilson as Ed Warren; take a look here…
“This is the darkest Conjuring movie,” states director Michael Chaves. “It digs into some really dark material. This is definitely a case where there’s real consequence, there’s real victims. This is really taking the Warrens into uncharted places. Being a fan of the franchise, I was honestly really nervous at first breaking with convention, breaking with a lot of things that are tradition, but I think that what we’ve done is really woven the language and the things that you do want from a Conjuring film – the scares, the Warrens, their relationship – [and [pushed them] to the limits in this really fresh and exciting new direction.”
“One of the things that [series creator] James [Wan] and I connected on while making The Curse of La Llorona was sharing a lot of the same favorite movies, and one of them is Se7en,” added Chaves. “We both love that movie, and so when he came to me with this script, he basically was like, ‘It’s Se7en, but in the Conjuring universe.’ And he knew that was like catnip for me.”
“The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” reveals a chilling story of terror, murder and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga). One of the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they’d ever seen before, to mark the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is directed by Michael Chaves from a screenplay written by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and The Conjuring universe creator James Wan. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are set to reprise their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren respectively.
