More casting news has come our way for The Nun as Variety is reporting that Ingrid Bisu (After Dark’s Slaughter) has signed on for active duty as another unlucky sister.
The Nun, New Line’s spin-off of The Conjuring 2, stars Demian Bichir as a priest, Taissa Farmiga as a nun, and Bonnie Arrons, who is reprising her role from the second Conjuring movie. Corin Hardy is directing.
The studio began developing The Nun last June, shortly after The Conjuring 2 opened. Producers are James Wan, who directed the two Conjuring movies and produced the sequel through his Atomic Monster company, and Peter Safran, who produced both movies.
The story centers on a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania taking her own life, with a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret and confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun from The Conjuring 2.
Jonas Bloquet (Elle) plays a villager. Charlotte Hope (“Game of Thrones”) portrays the abbey’s Sister Victoria, and Bisu (pictured below) will play Sister Oana. The script for The Nun is written by Gary Dauberman and Wan.
The Nun is set for release on July 13, 2018 — a Friday the 13th.
