THE CONJURING 3 Expands Series Beyond Haunted House Formula
Director Michael Chaves’ The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return opens in theatres on September 11, 2020. And today, screenwriter, David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick says the new film expands the series beyond the haunted house formula.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It reveals a chilling story of terror, murder, and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. One of the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they’d ever seen before, to mark the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return to star as Ed and Lorraine Warren, under the direction of Michael Chaves. The film also stars Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, and Julian Hilliard.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It was produced by James Wan and Peter Safran, who have collaborated on all the Conjuring Universe films. Chaves (The Curse of La Llorona) directed from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (The Conjuring 2, Aquaman), story by James Wan & David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick. Serving as executive producers were Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Victoria Palmeri, Michael Clear, Judson Scott, and Michelle Morrissey.
The behind-the-scenes creative team reunited Conjuring Universe contributors including director of photography Michael Burgess, production designer Jennifer Spence, costume designer Leah Butler, and composer Joseph Bishara, along with the director’s editor from The Curse of La Llorona, Peter Gvozdas. The film opens in theatres on September 11, 2020.
