New Line’s next spinoff from The Conjuring franchise is keeping things in the family — at least on the real-world side of things. Taissa Farmiga, sister of Conjuring star Vera Farmiga, is set to star in The Nun, based on the terrifying ghoul featured in James Wan’s sequel to his blockbuster horror hit. Little is known about the upcoming spinoff, though it seems unlikely that Farmiga’s role will be related to her sister’s fictional take on famous paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren.
The Conjuring’s fictionalized paranormal investigator couple have a room in their house that’s like Princess Ariel’s secret trove in The Little Mermaid, except theirs is full of items that are probably haunted and definitely want to do you harm. After Annabelle, the latest spinoff to come out of the Conjurverse is The Nun, based on the demon who takes the shape of a nun in The Conjuring 2, and The Hateful Eight’s Demian Bichir has just been cast.
Like that creepy doll from The Conjuring, that creepy nun from James Wan’s The Conjuring 2 will also get her own spinoff, further expanding the spooky Wan-iverse. The director’s fictional versions of famous paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren have housed an entire collection of keepsakes and haunted objects from their cases, meaning there’s no shortage of possibilities for Wan’s ever-growing franchise.
