‘The Conjuring 2’ Star Patrick Wilson Teases the Return of the Warrens in New Photo
The Conjuring was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2013, the rare modern horror movie to strike that perfect balance between crowd-pleasing mainstream fare and nerdy, genre-specific detail. Casual horror fans loved it. Hardcore horror fans loved it. A sequel was announced almost instantly. Now, two years later, we have our first real shred of evidence that the second cinematic case of Ed and Lorraine Warren is actually, truly happening.
Although we have heard rumblings about The Conjuring 2 for some time now, it took Patrick Wilson’s Twitter feed to make the project feel like a reality. The actor posted a photo of himself and Vera Farmiga posing in front of a building with a sign reading “New England Paranormal Research Center.” As previously reported, Wilson, Farmiga and director James Wan (tagged in Wilson’s tweet) are back for the sequel:
It’s no wonder that a sequel took so long to pull together — everyone has been working on other things! Unlike most horror movie sequels, The Conjuring 2 requires the involvement of Wilson and Farmiga, whose performances kept the supernatural spookiness of the original movie grounded in a very real place. You can’t just push out a quickie sequel since these two are the reason to see another movie!
The Conjuring 2, which is rumored to be based on the case of the Enfield Poltergeist, is aiming for a June 10, 2016 release date.
