Fans of The Conjuring 2 will be pleased to learn that Bonnie Aarons will be reprising her role as The Nun for the upcoming Conjuring spinoff. The news comes courtesy of THR.
Aarons will join previously announced cast members Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) and Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight). Bichir will play a priest who is called in by The Vatican to look into the unexplained death of a nun. Farmiga will play a younger version of the titular character.
As we previously reported, the film had commenced preproduction. The planned release date for the picture is July 13, 2018.
The Conjuring franchise has been a cash cow for Newline. Both Conjuring films and the first installment in the Annabelle franchise have done huge numbers. So, another spinoff was inevitable.
Corin Hardy (The Hallow) was chosen by Newline to take on directorial duties for the upcoming flick. The Nun is being produced by Gary Dauberman and James Wan.
Stay tuned to the site in the coming months for more on this project and the latest in horror news as we learn it.
