Oh man! Now we’ve got one less horror films to watch in 2015 as the release date for the sequel of James Wan’s “The Conjuring” has been moved to 2016.
After announcing their full movie slate of DC Comics films, Warner Bros. Pictures made some changes to the release date for other films by delaying the sequel of “The Conjuring” to an unspecified date in 2016.
Originally slated for release on 23rd October 2015, the sequel will continue to unfold the story based on the work of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, where Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will return to play the Warrens couple.
It was also recently announced that James Wan will return to direct the film while Chad and Carey Hayes will be writing the screenplay. Just recently, a spin-off film of “The Conjuring” was released in the Malaysian cinemas but the film received mixed reviews from the audience. Unlike the sequel, the spin-off film tells the story of Annabelle, the cursed doll that was featured in “The Conjuring”.
UPDATE (November 12th):
Titled “The Conjuring 2: The Endfield Poltergeist”, the sequel of James Wan’s “The Conjuring” now has a specific release date.
After announcing that the sequel will be moved to 2016, Warner Bros. has announced that the sequel is slated for release on June 10, 2016.
As we’ve previously mentioned, James Wan will return to direct the film with Chad and Carey Hayes’ screenplay. While everything about the film is still kept under wraps, do you think the sequel will do better than its spin-off film? More importantly, will they put a fresh twist and new horror elements in the sequel?
