Jason Blum Thought The CONJURING UNIVERSE Was A Preposterous Idea
The Conjuring Universe is the largest horror franchise in history, grossing more than $1.8 billion worldwide. But it looks like Blumhouse head Jason Blum thought it was a preposterous idea.
Blum tells Fandom: “I’ll tell you a funny story about The Conjuring. A month or two after it turned into a huge hit, someone said to me: “We’re going to make a Conjuring universe”. It wasn’t James because I wouldn’t have doubted James, [it was] someone else who was involved in it. But I thought that was preposterous and, in fact, that’s what they did. It’s pretty amazing — it goes off into all these things, and I would love to have been involved with it.”
Up next in The Conjuring Universe is The Conjuring 3 aka The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. It is the seventh film in The Conjuring Universe, which includes The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2, Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation, The Nun, and Annabelle Comes Home.
The Conjuring 3 is directed by Michael Chaves (The Curse of La Llorona) from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (The Conjuring 2). James Wan and Peter Safran produce. Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Victoria Palmeri, Michael Clear, Judson Scott, and Michelle Morrissey are executive producers. It opens in theatres nationwide on September 11, 2020.
