Trust “The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist” is in good hands because James Wan, who directed the first “Conjuring” film, is returning to direct it.

The highly anticipated sequel was originally scheduled for release on 23rd October this year, but Warner Bros. abruptly pulled the film from the schedule and set it for 2016 release.

On 23rd October (Monday), Wan confirmed that production on the sequel has officially begun by posting several photos from the film set.

As shown in the first set photo, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will return to reprise their respective roles as real-life paranormal investigating couple Lorraine and Ed Warren. “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” star Simon McBurney is also spotted in the photo, but details regarding his role remain a secret.

Official plot details for the film are still kept under wraps, but it will most likely take place in England as the title refers to a paranormal incident involving 2 young girls in Enfield, England, in the late 70s. The incident allegedly led to the demonic possession of 2 young girls.

“The Missing” star Frances O’Connor will be playing the mother of a girl who is experiencing the haunting. Other cast members include Abhi Sinha, Lauren Esposito, Franka Potente, Simon Delaney, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Patrick McAuley, Benjamin Haigh, and Madison Wolfe.

Wan will direct the film based on a screenplay he wrote with Chad and Carey Hayes. The script will be revised by David Leslie Johnson, who is also on board to pen the script for Wan’s upcoming superhero film “Aquaman“. Peter Safran will serve as producer alongside Wan and Rob Cowan.

“The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist” is slated for release on 10th June 2016.
