Conjuring Universe Update – “Conjuring 3”, “The Nun”, & “Crooked Man”!!!

Entertainment Weekly has an awesome article covering James Wan’s state of The Conjuring franchise, which includes upcoming films The Conjuring 3, The Nun, & The Crooked Man.  Here are some notable qoutes:

 

On The Conjuring Universe:

“When we were starting out, when we made the first Conjuring, we always kind of quietly, jokingly, among ourselves, felt that the world of the Warrens, and all the interesting artifacts they have in their haunted room, could have their own stories and therefore spawn movies. We had hopes and aspirations but we never thought in our wildest dreams that we could actually go on and do it…We’ve been working hard on Conjuring 3. Of course, that is something that I am not neglecting. The Conjuring movies are still the mothership and the mothership needs to be strong. The mothership needs to be strong for all these other jet fighters to shoot out of. So, we’re in the midst of working on the script, and still hashing [it] out. We want to make sure that the script is in a really good place. With how much people have loved the first two Conjuring, I don’t want to rush into the third one if possible.”

 

On directing The Conjuring 3:

“I just don’t think it’s realistic with my schedule. I’m going to be on Aquaman for a year-and-a-half. I just don’t see that as a reality.”

 

On Corin Hardy (The Nun director):

“I love Corin. That guy is amazing. I put Corin in the same camp as David. You know, like, really young, hungry, upcoming filmmakers, full of passion for the genre. Corin is such a monster movie-nut and I just love the guy’s passion. All these up-and-coming filmmakers remind me of what I was when I started with Saw. That’s the kind of filmmakers I would love to continue to foster through Atomic Monster. So, I’m very excited for what Corin has done with The Nun, and right now we’re in post-production, putting the film together.”

 

The Crooked Man, a dark fairytale?

“Early stages, kind of like cooking away. But we think we have a really exciting story. What we want to do, with The Conjuring universe, is we want each of our little offshoots to have a very different flavor, right? So, for example, Annabelle is the classic sort-of haunted doll subgenre. And with The Crooked Man, I would love to push it more down somewhat of that dark fairytale, and more whimsical, subgenre. I love the idea that, within the Conjuring universe, each of our little movies all have their own flavor, so that way they don’t feel like they’re the same films.”
