THE CONJURING franchise certainly has figured out how to extend its shelf life, using the various supernatural villains introduced in the prior film for spin-off purposes. Following the success of the first CONJURING, we got an ANABELLE movie that gave the origins of that creepy doll that Ed and Lorraine Warren locked away in a glass case. And now, following the success of THE CONJURING 2, a spin-off known currently as THE NUN is in the works. 

Centered around the demonic nun that wants Patrick Wilson dead in the sequel, THE NUN is currently being penned by David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote THE CONJURING 2. James Wan will produce, much like he did on ANABELLE, alongside Peter Safran who has been involved with all three CONJURING-related films to this point. 

It's impressive how far Wan has been able to stretch this series, particularly in this case, given that the nun character wasn't a part of the most recent film until about three months out from release. Originally, it was a horned demon in the spot until Wan had a last-minute idea that New Line give their blessing for him to add through reshoots. The changes were made. THE CONJURING 2 went on to be a horror hit, and another spin-off was born. That's show business for you.

The Conjuring 2 wasn't as good as the first film, mostly because it simply rehashed a lot of shots/material/scares from the first film, but also because of some truly cheesy moments and some surprisingly bad acting on the part of Vermiga and Wilson. The Nun just strikes me as another cash-grab just like Annabelle was.

The Nun was the scariest part of the movie

I loved The Conjuring 2 more than the first, so seeing more of Nun/Valac is a welcome addition. I also love MechaFanboy's suggestion of a shared universe.

I feel like these side character projects are leading up to something bigger...

We already have heard that there will be a Blumhouse Horror Movie Universe Collaboration with creatures from Insidious, Conjuring and Sinister movies brought together. I feel like the Nun is going to be one of the creatures taken, along with Annabelle, Boogyman and the Insidious' Red Demon.

But in what movie will they all come together? Could we see a team up of the Warrens and Elise somehow? Or could we see The Nun being what Elise was so afraid of at the end of Insidious 2...

You know if they did a spinoff of Crooked Man, he would be 100% CGI and look worse than he did in this movie. At least with the Nun and even Annabelle there is little reason to have the creature be CGI.

Great news. Love these films. Annabelle was great, I still don't understand how people did not like it.

Let's just hope it's much better than the disappointing Annabelle. The nun was scary as hell in the Conjuring 2, so I'm hoping they can keep the scare and creepiness factor just as effective as Wan expertly did and displayed.

I agree. I just hope they don't do with the Nun like they did with the old hag from insidious and make her a crossdresser
