Corin Hardy, director of the upcoming spinoff of The Conjuring, has shared, via social media, an image of the film’s titular character, The Nun. The new film explores the back story of the spooky nun character from The Conjuring.
The Conjuring has already had one successful spinoff with prequel Annabelle, which in turn spawned its own prequel Annabelle: Creation.
The Nun is written by Gary Dauberman & James Wan and stars Taissa Farmiga, Bonnie Aarons, and Charlotte Hope. The film is expected to hit theaters nationwide on Friday, September 7th.
When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in The Conjuring 2, as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.
