Akela Cooper To Pen The Nun Sequel

Screenwriter Akela Cooper (“Luke Cage,” “The 100,” “Grimm,” “Hell Fest”) has been set to pen the script for a follow-up to 2017’s “The Nun,” a spin-off film in Warners’ ever-growing “The Conjuring” universe.

To date, the various films of the series have pulled in $1.57 billion at the global box office, and “The Nun” is the highest grossing entry to date with more than $365 million worldwide.

The news comes as Cooper announced today her departure as showrunner of FX’s “Y: The Last Man”. She’s not short of work though, she recently penned the script for the James Wan-produced AI doll film “M3gan” and written for Netflix’s forthcoming series “Jupiter’s Legacy”.

The yet-to-be-titled “The Nun” sequel will be produced by Wan and Peter Safran. The announcement comes ahead of other ‘Conjuring’ spin-offs this Summer including “The Curse of La Llorona” (aka “The Curse of the Weeping Woman” in some markets) this Friday and “Annabelle Comes Home” opening June 28th.
