We've known for a while that The Conjuring was going to get a sequel, with the plan to release it around Halloween 2015 and rake in the cash once more. Now those plans have changed with a major delay, but for a good reason!
It seems that we won't see a direct sequel to The Conjuring until around October 2015, according to studio New Line. But rather than being because of some awkward creative differences, this move seems to have a lot to do with the return of director James Wan. That's right, the man behind Saw. Insidious and The Conjuring is coming back to horror.
Wan drifted to the mainstream by directing Fast and Furious 7, a film that's still in post production following the unfortunate death of star Paul Walker. After the lengthy delays of that film he'll likely be looking forward to going back to a familiar genre and a much smaller budget, with the blockbuster already costing well in excess of $250 million.
The Conjuring sequel will again follow the lives of the Warren's (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) - a real-life husband and wife team who investigate paranormal activity. The story could bring them to England, for some more very creepy times.
The Conjuring Part II will likely release in October 2016.
