James Wan Will Direct The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring

New Line Cinema/Warner Bros. pushing back “The Conjuring 2’s” release from October 23, 2015 to an undisclosed 2016 date seemed to be a way to pave the way for director James Wan to direct the sequel, and today, it has been announced that Wan will indeed direct “The Conjuring 2.”

“It was during the editing of Fast & Furious 7 that my brain started sparking ideas for The Conjuring sequel,” Wan said. “Taking a break from horror has allowed me to be creatively rejuvenated. I’m excited to tell the story of the next case-file of Ed & Lorraine Warren and expand on this world we’ve created.”
