We are now officially in the midst of the annual horror season. With Halloween rapidly approaching, scary films are debuting in cinemas (and online) to get us in the mood.
However, we won’t be able to watch The Nun 2 this Halloween season. Where can we find out the release date for The Nun 2? This is all the information we have on the film so far.
With much anticipation, the Nun sequel’s release date has finally been set. While reviewers weren’t kind to 2018 original, audiences were thrilled to have it join the expanding Conjuring world.
Update on When to Expect Nun 2 to Arrive
The Nun was confirmed as a spin-off of The Conjuring 2 on June 15, 2016. On September 7, 2018, the movie made its debut in the United States.
Warner Bros. Pictures, known for blockbusters like “Inception” and “Wonder Woman,” was responsible for the film’s distribution.
The box office success of this American picture was unprecedented, with a total of almost $365 million.
However, the picture was a huge hit at the box office in several other countries, notably Brazil, the Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates, where it quickly became one of the highest-grossing horror films of all time.
We have some exciting and interesting news for you, but it has nothing to do with the impending sequel The Nun 2. As 2017 came to a close, many fans of The Nun began wondering if there would be a sequel.
In April 2019, it was revealed that production had begun on a sequel, therefore it appears that this speculation was well founded. A premiere date for The Nun 2 has not been set. The release date is set for 2023.
In whose hands will The Nun 2 fall?
Corin Hardy, who helmed “The Nun,” is a newbie to the “Conjuring” Universe as a whole and to feature filmmaking as a whole. This is only his second feature picture after having filmed several music videos.
The sequel to “The Nun” will not feature Hardy. James Wan’s April 2022 Instagram post did not only announce Michael Chaves as the new director of the “Nun” sequel but also confirmed the film’s title.
Wan urged his Instagram followers to express their joy at having Chaves return by mentioning his appearances in past films set in the “Conjuring” universe.
By the time “The Nun 2” is released, Chaves will have helmed three of the four most current films set in the “Conjuring” Universe. He previously directed “The Curse of La Llorona” and “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.”
Chaves praised his time spent in the studio with Wan in an interview with ScreenRant. “Truly, I have James Wan to thank for my professional success.
Like many of you, I’ve always liked his work. One of the greatest joys of my life was collaborating with him on La Llorona “This is what Chaves remarked.
Meanwhile, Akela Cooper, whose previous work includes the standalone James Wan picture “Malignant,” is penning the script for “The Nun 2.”
It’s clear that for the latest installment of his signature horror franchise, Wan is relying on the expertise of friends and colleagues with whom he’s already worked in the past.
Who Will Play The Nun in the Sequel?
The film starred Demián Bichir as Father Burke and Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene. In a sense, Sister Victoria temporarily filled Charlotte Hope’s role.
Several actresses appeared in The Nun; Sandra Teles played Sister Ruth, Ani Sava played Sister Jessica, Ingrid Bisu played Sister Oana, and Maria Obretin played Sister Abigail.
Additionally, Manuela Ciucur played Sister Christin and Bonnie Aarons played Valak. The sequel to The Nun has not been formally confirmed, but Bonnie Aarons is expected to return to play the title character once again.
