‘Conjuring 2’ Spinoff ‘The Nun’ in the Works at New Line

New Line is developing “The Nun,” a spinoff movie based on the demonic character in “The Conjuring 2.”

The studio has tapped David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote “Conjuring 2” with Chad and Carey Hayes, to write the script. Producers are James Wan, who directed the two “Conjuring” movies and produced the sequel, and Peter Safran, who produced both movies.

No director or actors have been set yet for “The Nun.” The demon nun came to life in “The Conjuring 2” in a painting by Patrick Wilson’s paranormal investigator Ed Warren and later attacked Vera Farmiga’s Lorraine Warren character.

The duo deals with the 1977 case of demonic possession of an 11-year-old British girl, played by Madison Wolfe.

New Line has already successfully spun off 2014’s “Annabelle” from the demonic doll from 2013’s “The Conjuring.” “Annabelle” was a massive hit with $256 million worldwide on a $6 million budget with a sequel set for next year.

“The Conjuring” grossed $320 million worldwide and “The Conjuring 2” has performed similarly, already grossing over $100 million worldwide in less than a week of release.
