Read his comments below.
Chaves tells IGN: “One of the things that [series creator] James [Wan] and I connected on while making The Curse of La Llorona was sharing a lot of the same favorite movies, and one of them is Se7en. We both love that movie, and so when he came to me with this script, he basically was like, ‘It’s Se7en, but in the Conjuring universe.’ And he knew that was like catnip for me.”
The MPAA slapped the new film will an R-rating for terror, violence, and some disturbing images Will it be the final chapter for the Warrens? Not if Farmiga and Wilson have a say in the matter. Both revealed they’d love to continue.
Farmiga tells Empire: “Oh my God, I’d love to [continue]. It’s interesting, we have to up the fear in each one. Demonology is already so high-pitched and operatic.”
Wilson adds: “We constantly want to push these characters. I would like to – for no other reason than I would want to keep playing opposite Vera.“
