News on The Nun, the highly anticipated new spinoff movie based upon the creepy character first featured in The Conjuring 2, is coming in fast! Earlier this month, we learned that Oscar-nominated actor Demian Bichir is set to star in the film. Now, Deadline reports that Taissa Farmiga is set to play the young nun herself in the film!
There’s no one out there more qualified to play the nun in The Nun. Taissa Farmiga’s horror credits include American Horror Story and The Final Girls. Better yet, she is the little sister of Vera Farmiga, who plays Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring films! This creepy coincidence wasn’t lost on franchise creator and director, James Wan, who had this to say about the development on Twitter:

We’re going to hold you to that statement, James! There are five other Farmiga siblings out there who might be a good fit for Aquaman!
The Nun will be directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow, the upcoming film, The Crow). It is set to debut in theaters on July (Friday the) 13th, 2018. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more casting details for the film as they break!
