Production begins on New Line Cinema’s The Conjuring 3
Lead actress Vera Farmiga took to Twitter to share the first behind-the-scenes photo from the set of New Line Cinema’s The Conjuring 3, revealing that production has officially begun on the eighth installment to The Conjuring Universe. Patrick Wilson and Farmiga will also be reprising their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren in the upcoming Annabelle Comes Home which is set to premiere this month on June 26.
A previous report on the third installment revealed it would tell the story of Bill Ramsey, also known as The Southend Werewolf. After a lifetime of bizarre events including rage attacks, unexplained moments of superstrength and reports of transforming into a werewolf and assaulting people, Bill Ramsey was visited by the real Ed and Lorraine Warren in the 1980s, who convinced the man to undergo an exorcism, believing he was possessed by a demon. Following an intense exorcism with the Warren’s specialist Bishop Robert McKenna, Ramsey reported in the early ’90s that there have been no further incidents and has been quiet ever since.
James Wan will produce The Conjuring 3 having directed the first two installments. The filmmaker entrusted Michael Chaves, who recently directed The Curse of La Llorona, to helm the upcoming third installment thanks to Chaves’ ability to bring emotion along with the necessary scary elements, as he showed in La Llorona.
You can catch The Conjuring 3 when it creeps into theaters on September 11, 2020.
