“The Conjuring” Cast Interviews and Franchise Plans

July 17, 2013

THE CONJURING looks to be a sleeper hit. Variety is reporting that New Line is already working on the sequel. James Wan’s demonic possession thriller opens Friday in the wake of off-the-charts test screening results and strong reviews.

Horror is very much a part of the DNA of New Line — Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, The Rite, and the Final Destination films,” New Line president Toby Emmerich explains. “This is as good a horror movie as we’ve ever made…. We think it will have great playability.

Emmerich told Variety that New Line is exploring a potential franchise based on the Warrens’ real-life investigations, which also involved cases that inspired the movies The Amityville Horror and The Haunting in Connecticut. “We have Lorraine’s permission and support, and we are working on developing another film,” Emmerich said.

The Conjuring‘s screenwriters ,Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes, are on board for the sequel. The brothers interviewed Lorraine Warren extensively as part of developing the script.

Synopsis: “The horrifying tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.

The film stars Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Joey King, Shanley Caswell, Haley McFarland, Mackenzie Foy, Kyla Deaver and Sterling Jerins.

The film comes out this Friday, July 19th.
