With the success of The Conjuring 2, New Line is already planning a spinoff featuring the villain of the film, a demonic nun. David Leslie Johnson, co-writer on Conjuring 2, will be writing the film. Director James Wan and Peter Safran, who produced the films, will be reuniting to produce the spinoff.
The demonic nun character didn’t actually exist until three months before Conjuring 2 opened. She was added during last-minute reshoots after Wan decided on the new concept, rather than the original demonic figure with horns that was being used.
