During a CinemaCon presentation earlier today, Warner Bros. revealed that The Conjuring 3 would be hitting theaters on September 11th, 2020. We most recently reported on the in-development project last September, when long-time franchise producer Peter Safran revealed that David Lindsay Johnson was working on the screenplay, with production set to begin sometime in 2019.
The Curse of La Llorona director Michael Chaves will helm this new sequel with James Wan stepping aside for the time being. Much like in the next Annabelle movie, franchise regulars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will return to reprise their roles of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, sticking to the tried-and-true formula of each film investigating a different case in the real-life duo's history of delving deep into the demonic and unusual.
Reports indicate that the new sequel will focus on the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, aka the infamous "The Devil Made Me Do It" case, in which the defendant claimed that demonic possession was responsible for the murder she committed. She was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in November of 1981, but we'll assume that isn't much of a spoiler for the new movie.
Nonetheless, production on The Conjuring 3 is set to begin this summer with the film arriving on September 11th, 2020. Stick around on Dead Entertainment for all the latest news.
