The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (also known as The Conjuring 3) is a forthcoming American supernatural horror film directed by Michael Chaves, with a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick from a story by Johnson-McGoldrick and James Wan. The film will be a sequel to 2013’s The Conjuring and 2016’s The Conjuring 2.
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will be reprising their roles as paranormal investigators and authors Ed and Lorraine Warren, with Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, and Julian Hilliard also starring. Wan and Peter Safran are returning to co-produce the project. The film is based on the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, a murder trial that took place in 1981 in Connecticut.
VFX of the movie is done by Method Studios (VFX supervisor: Josh Simmonds), Crafty Apes (VFX supervisor: Mark LeDoux), Ingenuity Studios, Digital Domain, Secret Lab and Rodeo FX.
The trailer featured some jump scare, CG blood, supernatural effects and environments enhanced wonderfully by VFX.
Preparation for a third Conjuring film began in 2016, though Wan shared that he would not be directing another film in the series due to scheduling conflicts with other projects. Safran confirmed that the next film would not be a haunted house film. By June 2017, it was officially announced that a third instalment was in development, with David Leslie Johnson hired to write the screenplay. Michael Chaves was announced as the film’s director, after previously directing The Curse of La Llorona.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is scheduled for release in the United States on 4 June 2021 by Warner Bros. Pictures.
