The Conjuring 3 is a forthcoming American supernatural horror feature film to be directed by Michael Chaves (The Curse of La Llorona; short: The Maiden).
New Line Cinema had previously announced that David Leslie Johnson (The Walking Dead; Dungeons & Dragons; Red Riding Hood; Orphan) is the lead writer for the third outing in The Conjuring franchise – he co-wrote the previous entry, which grossed $320 million worldwide..
Although no plot details are forthcoming, it can safely be assumed that the storyline will revolve around a case file from paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, as played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. James Wan is returning a co-producer alongside Peter Safran for his Atomic Monster production company.
Although critics, including HORRORPEDIA, were generally unimpressed, recent release The Nun (2018) has gone on to be the most successful in The Conjuring universe so far with worldwide takings at a whopping $335,711,735.
New Line Cinema is also extending The Conjuring universe, with The Crooked Man, based on the malevolent character in The Conjuring 2.
Elsewhere, David Leslie Johnson has also been tasked with a second rebooting of A Nightmare on Elm Street for New Line Cinema after the poor reception to the 2010 reboot.
