The Nun From THE CONJURING 2 Is Getting Her Own Movie!
In case you missed it, the other day New Line announced that they are moving ahead on a Nun spinoff from the popular The Conjuring franchise. Confessionals will never be the same again. 
 
This is the second spinoff film from the series. The first was Annabelle, the creepy doll from the first film, which I should add, is getting a sequel of her own. 
 
New Line is developing a bad habit.
 
Fresh off the success of The Conjuring 2, the film company is spinning off the villain of the supernatural thriller, the demonic nun, into her own movie.
 
David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote Conjuring 2, has been hired to pen what is being titled The Nun. James Wan, who directed the Conjuring movies, and Peter Safran, who produced them, are reuniting to produce the spinoff.
 
What is noteworthy about the demon nun character is that she didn’t exist until about three months beforeConjuring 2 opened, as she was only added during last-minute reshoots.
 
The studio and Wan had a cut of the movie, which stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as paranormal investigators, in which the antagonist was a demonic figure with horns. The studio was ready to release that version but at the last minute, Wan was struck by a revelation. And so he came up with a new concept, a demon nun, which he pitched to New Line. And even though the late-in-the-game change could have spooked some studios, New Line exec gave him their blessing.
