It's great to see such confidence in a genre project that you can greenlight a sequel before the first installment has even hit theatres. James Wan's 'The Conjuring' arrives in US theatres this Friday and due to some early positive feedback from the preview screenings scribes Carey and Chad Hayes have been rehired to pen the sequel. The story based on the real life story of paranrmal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren will hopefully terrify audiences this weekend and see the sequel pushed forward for development. Patrick Wilson ('Insidious'), Vera Farmiga ('Bates Motel'), Ron Livingston ('Office Space'), Lili Taylor ('The Haunting'), Mackenzie Foy ('The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1'), Joey King, Hayley McFarland, Kyla Deaver and Shanley Caswell ('Detention') all star in 'The Conjuring'.
"Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, “The Conjuring” tells the horrifying tale of how renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorised by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse.Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives."
'The Conjuring' opens in the UK on 2 August.
