Warner Bros. Pictures has delayed their upcoming sequel to the 2013 James Wan hit The Conjuring. The tentatively-titled The Conjuring 2 will now arrive on an unspecified date in 2016. Taking the October 23, 2015 date will be an equally unspecified horror film from Warner Bros.
Unlike the recent spinoff film, Annabelle (which explored the back story of The Conjuring‘s terrifying doll), it is believed that The Conjuring 2 will continue the based-on-truth adventures of paranormal investigators Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga’s Ed and Lorraine Warren.
As was the case with the original, The Conjuring 2 feature a screenplay by Chad and Carey Hayes, although a director for the project has not yet been announced.
