Music video and “The Hallow” director Corin Hardy has been set to direct “The Nun,” the upcoming second spin-off of James Wan’s “The Conjuring” franchise.
The first spin-off, “Annabelle,” centered around a haunted doll seen in the first “Conjuring”. This one will deal with the demonic nun Valak who served as the primary antagonist in the second film.
Wan co-writes the spin-off with Gary Dauberman, and will produce with Peter Safran. “Annabelle,” which cost less than $7 million to make, earned $257 million in 2014.
Hardy remains attached to direct “The Crow” with Jason Momoa, but that film is still looking for a new studio.
