It grossed over USD318 million worldwide from its USD20 million budget, making it one of the highest-grossing horror films of all time. The film’s immense success even helped spawn a spin-off titled “Annabelle” last year.
Now, after much anticipation, the first teaser trailer for the sequel to the original film has arrived online.
Simply titled “The Conjuring 2“, the sequel will see Farmiga and Wilson returning to reprise their respective roles as real-life paranormal investigating couple Lorraine and Ed Warren. Unlike the spin-off film, it will continue the based-on-truth adventures of the Warrens, whose cases inspired the likes of “The Haunting in Connecticut” and “The Amityville Horror”.
The sequel will take place in north 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 a single mother who is raising 4 children alone in a house plagued by sinister spirits. Madison Wolfe, Lauren Esposito, Patrick McAuley, and Benjamin Haigh are starring as the 4 children.
Other cast members include Abhi Sinha, Franka Potente, Simon Delaney, and Maria Doyle Kennedy.
Wan is helming it based on a screenplay he wrote with Chad and Carey Hayes. The script was further 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.
