Remember that nasty little lawsuit that was lingering around the sequel to The Conjuring over who had the use of rights involving the case files of paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren? Well it’s been dropped.
Deadline reports that producer Tony DeRosa-Grun’s case against New Line Cinema has been thrown away by DeRosa-Grun himself. DeRosa-Grun filed papers in court recently calling for the case he put forward in October to be “dismissed without prejudice.”
Put forward on October 22, the case accused New Line of “money laundering” and “overt racketeering acts” in order to gain control of rights to the film’s sequel, The Conjuring 2. The move, however, also gives DeRosa-Grund an opportunity to file another suit in time.
This is good news for the sequel that James Wan is coming back to helm. As we recently learned, New Line plans on releasing The Conjuring 2 in 2016.
