‘The Conjuring 2’ Getting a Spin-Off As Well

Minor Spoilers Below

The Conjuring had its own spin-off, the abysmal cash grab Annabelle, about the demonic and appropriately creepy doll from the original film. And now, it seems a crucial character from The Conjuring 2 will have her own spin-off.

That’s right, the evil demonic nun (was it Dalak?) who winds up being the underlying motivation behind all the wickedness in James Wan’s sequel, will have her own moment in the sun. Or the shadows.

From the report in THR:

New Line is developing a bad habit. Fresh off the success of The Conjuring 2, the film company is spinning off the villain of the supernatural thriller, the demonic nun, into her own movie.

David Leslie Johnson, who co-wrote Conjuring 2, has been hired to pen what is being titled The Nun. James Wan, who directed the Conjuring movies, and Peter Safran, who produced them, are reuniting to produce the spinoff.


So there you have it. The Nun is on its way. Easily the creepiest entity from The Conjuring 2, the nun is a clear choice for the spin-off treatment. Mostly because she’s the best part of a middling sequel, an outstretched effort that stays afloat under the sure handedness of Wan.
