“The Conjuring 3” Lines Up A 2019 Shoot

“The Conjuring” film series producer Peter Safran has revealed that plans are underway to begin production on the third film in the main series next year ahead of a release in 2020 via Warner Bros. Pictures.

Speaking with Cinema Blend this week about the just-released spin-off feature “The Nun,” Safran offered an update on the project: “It’s actually coming along great. David Leslie Johnson is working on the screenplay, and I feel pretty confident they will have that one up and running next year.”

Johnson penned the second film and is returning alongside James Wan and Safran as producers, with the new film said to not be another “haunted house with a family in peril” story. It’s not yet certain if Wan will also return to direct like he did the first two “The Conjuring” films.
