‘The Conjuring 4’ Moves Ahead With Returning Screenwriter

by Thomas Tuna

This is the way to conjure up some horror.

New Line Cinema is moving forward with The Conjuring 4–the next installment in the successful horror franchise started in 2013 by director James Wan and scripters Chad and Carey Hayes–by bringing back David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick as screenwriter, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Johnson-McGoldrick wrote The Conjuring 2 and last year’s The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, based on the real-life cases of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. There’s no word at this early stage if the storyline for this new film will follow the same format.

In that vein, it’s generally thought that Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga–who played the Warrens in the first three Conjuring films and the Annabelle Comes Home spinoff–will reprise those roles, but no confirmation from the studio has yet come down.

Wan and Peter Safran will return as producers of this next entry in The Conjuring franchise, which has already raked in more than $2 billion at the global box office.
