Taissa Farmiga, younger sister of “The Conjuring” star Vera Farmiga, will join that franchise’s upcoming spin-off feature “The Nun” at Warner Bros. Pictures. Farmiga will play the title role in the film.
The character served as the antagonist in “The Conjuring” sequel, a late addition to the action that quickly became a fan favorite and so a spin-off feature was announced within a week of the film opening.
Corin Hardy (“The Hallow”) helms the film from a script by Gary Dauberman and James Wan. Demian Bichir also stars in the film which will shoot this summer in Romania and open in cinemas on July 13th.
The two “The Conjuring” films and the first spin-off “Annabelle” have already earned a total of $895 million worldwide from a combined budget of just $66.5 million across the three films.
