When The Conjuring was released in 2013, one of the most successful horror movie franchises of all time was born.
The film has since spawned not only a direct sequel in The Conjuring 2, but several high-selling spinoff movies as well. Annabelle and its prequel Annabelle: Creation both did fantastic at the box office, as did the recently-released film, The Nun.
The spin offs give their own to the universe but it will be nice to see Ed and Lorraine Warren back on the screen. James Wan, who directed the first two films, will at least be returning for The Conjuring 3 as a producer.
As the filmmaker has his hands full with Aquaman, however, he has previously stated he might not be available to direct the next Conjuring film. Time will tell what happens, but if Wan winds up helming the sequel himself, it will be the first time he’s completed a trilogy as a director.
