Ed and Lorraine Warren might have just worked on another case on the big screen this month. But fans are already looking forward to “The Conjuring 3.” The real-life Warrens have handled dozens of cases in their career as paranormal investigators. What case would their on-screen counterparts tackle in the next movie?
According to IGN, director James Wan said it would not be that hard to look for material for the movie franchise’s third installment. “They do have a lot of stories,” he explained. “I think, organically, if we’re lucky enough to tell future chapters, there’s a lot of stuff we could be pulling from.”
However, Wan decided not to say anything when asked what specific case would he have the Warrens work on next. “I do have something specific but I’m not going to say it,” he said. The director did provide a tiny clue, though. “Conjuring 1 and 2 are both set in the ‘70s…I think Conjuring 3 has got to be set in the ‘80s,” he teased.
What case could Wan be talking about? Bloody Disgusting has a couple of candidates for the movie’s next subject. But one standout is the White Lady of Union Cemetery. The cemetery is one of the most haunted cemeteries in the States. The Warrens worked on this case in the late 80s/early 90s.
Meanwhile, the nun from “Conjuring 2” is set to get her own spin-off movie. According to Collider, the spirit will continue scaring audiences in the upcoming film, “The Nun.” Wan, along with Peter Safran, will produce the spin-off. They earlier revealed that the nun didn’t almost make it on screen. “Originally, Wan imagined the demon spirit haunting the Hodgson family as some horned creature,” Collider explained. Wan came up with the idea of the nun just months before the film’s release. Production had to reshoot some scenes to make way for his new concept. But their effort seems to have paid off.
