The Conjuring franchise has been a real cash cow for Newline. Both Conjuring films and the first installment in the Annabelle franchise have done big numbers. So, it’s not surprising that another spinoff is in the works. As we previously reported, The Nun character from The Conjuring 2 is getting a spinoff. And we now know who the studio has tapped to direct. Head past the break for all the details!
According to Deadline, Corin Hardy (The Hallow) has been chosen by Newline to take on directorial duties for the project. Hardy was previously tied to the long-gestured remake of The Crow. But Jason Momoa is currently in line to direct that redux once it gets off the ground.
The Nun is being produced by Gary Dauberman and James Wan. Actress Bonnie Aarons played the character in The Conjuring 2 but we don’t yet have word on who will portray her in the spinoff. Hopefully Aarons will be back, seeing as how she made the character truly frightening and would be tough to replace.
