Now, we’re hearing that The Conjuring 3 is also gearing up with franchise producer Peter Safran telling CinemaBlend the further adventures of demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga respectively) will be going before cameras sometime in 2019.
“[The Conjuring 3] is actually coming along great. David Lindsay Johnson is working on the screenplay, and I feel pretty confident they will have that one up and running next year.”

Sure, that’s a pretty broad period of time, but considering the film doesn’t even have a director attached it makes sense that Safran is speaking in generalities. Unlike the spinoffs which have all been prequels to 2013’s The Conjuring, we expect The Conjuring 3 to pick up after the events The Conjuring 2, released in 2016 and set in 1977. Of course, we’ll keep you updated as additional details emerge.
