New Line Cinema is making a movie about the franchises nun and giving us the backstory of the creepy nun, as The Hollywood Reporter brings word that that film’s writer David Leslie Johnson has been hired to pen a spin-off of the demonic nun character titled, appropriately, The Nun.
This will be another spin-off like Annabelle, which was not critically or financially successful as The Conjuring, earned quite enough ($256 million worldwide) to warrant an Annabelle 2, which will be directed by David F. Sandberg and open on May 19, 2017.
James Wan and Peter Safran will produce The Nun, which was apparently a character added in last-minute reshoots just this past March. The main villain was originally a horned demon who was cut from the film.
Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson return as the Warrens, who, in one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.
