Some news has come in which reveals a bit about the story line for the next installment of the so far really bloody good Conjuring series. We knew that Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga were reprising their roles as the Warrens, but, interviewed by ‘Bloody Disgusting’, producer James Wan revealed that:
“It’s not necessarily based on an artifact but it’s based on one of the Warrens’ case files. All the Conjuring films are based on the case files, so they’re more based on the true story aspect of the real life Warrens. I think that’s important. It’s important that the mothership stays true to the inspiration of the real people. The spinoffs are where we get to have more fun and do weird and wonderful crazy things. The mothership of it being the Conjuring films, we want it to come back to the real stuff.”
“It’s about this guy who was on trial for committing a murder. I think it’s the first time in America’s history where the defendant used possessions as a reason, as an excuse.”
Wan was very impressed with the new director in the series Michael Chaves, who directed The Curse of La Llorona for him.
“He definitely impressed me, I feel like he’s this young up and coming filmmaker in this world. He’s a guy that understands how these films work. He’s really great working with actors and I feel like that’s something I want and need to work with, someone that people like Patrick and Vera would feel comfortable with. I’ve been a big fan of that story, of that world [The Curse of La Llorona]. I think it’s really cool to look at other culture. I’d love to explore more Asian centric stories.”
Wan’s batshit crazy superhero flick Aquaman is currently in cinemas, while The Curse of La Llorona will out on April 19th.
