James Wan has officially signed on to direct The Conjuring 2. It will begin shooting next summer for a 2016 release, pushing it back from the original October 2015 date.
There has been much speculation about whether he would return to the director’s chair after Fast & Furious 7, but it was announced today that Wan has closed a two-pronged deal with New Line Cinema
“It was during the editing of Fast & Furious 7 that my brain started sparking ideas for The Conjuring sequel,” Wan said. “Taking a break from horror has allowed me to be creatively rejuvenated. I’m excited to tell the story of the next case-file of Ed & Lorraine Warren and expand on this world we’ve created.”
The agreement also includes a first-look producing deal for Wan through his new Atomic Monster production banner.
Jessica Lange is a powerhouse.
But Frances Conroy is a fucking force.
…i love his ‘really?’ face…
