It looks like Valek is set to haunt our screens again as Peter Safran, who has produced all the films hailing from the Conjuring Universe, revealed to EW that the Nun 2 is happening.
Here’s what the producer said to EW:
“I think there is an inevitability to another Nun movie,” Peter Safran, who has produced all the Conjuring universe films, tells EW. “We have a really fun storyline for that teed up, so I think that that’s the next one that will be written.”
“Yeah, it was two days of additional shooting,” says Safran. “We just felt like the demon that we had in Conjuring 2was not as compelling as we wanted it to be. It was James of that came up with the idea. You know, what’s the most blasphemous thing you could think of? And that is a demonic nun.”
After Annabelle 2, we said, ‘We’ve told several families-in-danger in a possessed environment [films],” says Safran. “We really wanted to go far away from that in terms of its look, its feel, the geography, the landscape, everything. Once we knew that people were truly interested in The Nun we said, ‘This is a perfect opportunity to take it outside of America, to take it outside of what people are familiar with, and really place it in a unique environment.’ [We] went over there and shot in Transylvania at those incredible hooded-door castles. There’s nobody better for it than Corin was, because he embraced every element of the journey, of the difficulties of shooting there — to him that made it better, that made it more fun to shoot. He did a wonderful job under very very difficult circumstances. Even though, obviously, the film was somewhat savaged by critics, you don’t get to that kind of box office success without at least the audience the enjoying it. It’s impossible, you can’t have that.”
