With the recent release of The Curse of La Llorona, The Conjuring brand has been in the news quite a bit recently. It’s no secret that Warner Brothers is continuing to find different routes to take the series, with the upcoming The Conjuring 3 set to be a major departure for the franchise from its horror-formula.
While we still have to wait till 2020 to see the film, Warner Brothers have given audiences a tease with the release of an official logo and artwork for the film.
Check out these photos which were shared by director Michael Chaves, as well as producer James Wan’s description of the upcoming film.
“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. I think that’s important. It’s important that the mothership stays true to the inspiration of the real people.
The spinoffs are where we get to have more fun and do weird and wonderful crazy things. The mothership of it being the Conjuring films, we want it to come back to the real stuff.”
I am glad that Wan continues to stay involved with these films, with his original vision being the most essential version of this brand. What ultimately concerns me about Conjuring 3 is the change in directors. Going from the skilled and experienced Wan to Michael Chaves, who struggled in his debut effort La Llorna, is certainly worrisome.
I hope with the guidance of Wan that Chaves is able to improve on his debut outing, as he certainly has a tough act to follow.
The Conjuring 3 hits theaters on September 11th, 2020.
