‘Conjuring 3’ will Fundamentally Change the Franchise!
It’s been a whilst since we had a direct sequel in the Conjuring series, with The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Case hitting cinemas in 2016. Whilst there has been a few spin offs, such as The Nun (2018), Annabelle Comes Home (2019) and The Curse of La Llorona (2019), the third film is due out this year, and according to screenwriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick it will Fundamentally Change the direction of the Franchise.
I was not extensively involved in “Malignant” — all I can say is that you should see it as soon as you have a chance.
C3 is a completely different movie than the first two. The franchise is expanding beyond the “haunted house” formula.

The new film is titled The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, and will see the return of Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson as paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren. Like the previous conjuring films, this one will also be based on the Warrens real life investigations, with The Devil Made Me Do It based on the 1981 murder trail of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, in which demonic possession was used the defense for a murder. This will be the very first film to move away from the Haunted Houses.
After witnessing a number of increasingly ominous occurrences involving David, the family, exhausted and terrified, decided to enlist the aid of self-described demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren (noted for their investigation into the famed Amityville Haunting) in a last-ditch effort to “cure” David. The Glatzel family, along with the Warrens, then proceeded to have David exorcised by a number of Catholic priests. The process continued for several days, concluding when, according to those present, a demon fled the child’s body and took up residence within Johnson.
The Curse of La Llorona director, Michael Chaves, steps in for James Wan, who helmed the first two Conjuring films but will only produce the third offering.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It arrives in theaters on Sept. 11th.
