Right now, James Wan is currently at work promoting Aquaman - and during said promo tour, the genre favourite has given us an idea of what to expect from The Conjuring 3.
Speaking to Bloody Disgusting about the third main Conjuring picture, Wan explained, “It’s not necessarily based on an artefact but it’s based one of the Warrens’ case files. All the Conjuring films are based on the case files, so they’re more based on the true story aspect of the real-life Warrens. It’s important that the mothership stays true to the inspiration of the real people. The spin-offs are where we get to have more fun and do weird and wonderful crazy things.”
More specifically, Wan would go on to add, “It’s this guy who was on trial for committing a murder. I think it’s the first time in America’s history where the defendant used possession as a reason, as an excuse.”
With The Curse of La Llorona’s Michael Chaves this time out, The Conjuring 3 is booked in for an April release.
