'The Conjuring 3' Is Officially Returning And There's a Brand New Director

'The Conjuring 3' Is Officially On Its Way

Following the success of the first two Conjurings and spin-off The Nun, it is no surprise or disappointment that a third installment is on the way. However, fans may be surprised and disappointed to hear that James Wan will be hopping out of the director's chair for The Conjuring 3.

But fear not, the film is undoubtedly going to be scary, with Wan delegating a more than capable deputy in the shape of Michael Chaves.

The pair worked together on the horror, The Curse Of La Llorona, which Chaves directed and Wan produced. Evidently, Chaves made a good impression during this period, with Wan allowing Chaves to take the helm on the much-anticipated third film.

In a statement, Wan said: "While working closely with Chaves on The Curse of La Llorona, I got to know him as a filmmaker.

There's A New Director.

Chaves seems equally excited about his new role, as a huge fan of The Conjuring Universe himself.

"It is both a total thrill an absolute honor to be working with James and the gang at New Line again."

But while there will be a new director, the script for the film will be penned once again by David Leslie Johnson, who wrote The Conjuring 2, and the storyline will once again center around paranormal investigations husband and wife duo, Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will also continue in their roles as lead protagonists.

The original The Conjuring, released in 2013, took the horror world by storm. The film was made with the relatively meager budget of $20 million (£15.3 million) but brought home almost $320 million (£245 million) from the worldwide box office.

The production company, New Line Cinema, knew a cash cow when they saw one and from there The Conjuring Universe began to evolve. And the popularity of the franchise is showing no signs of waning, with a most recent spin-off, The Nun, proving to be the most popular film so far, raking in around $335 million (£257 million).
A nail-biting wait lies ahead though, with the film not expected to be released until 2020... so don't go ordering your adult nappies just yet.
