The Conjuring 4 could bring the Warrens back if The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is a hit as there are lots of real-life cases left to explore.
“There are some intriguing case documents from the’80s and, without giving any of those away, I think that it’s also interesting to find that the Warrens more as those people figures under scrutiny, skeptics coming in them, them working with police departments,” director Michael Chaves informed Dread Central.
“What [The Devil Made Me Do It] ideally doesn’t open up this new chapter for the Warrens. This has an extremely unique end to The Conjuring movies. I would be more excited to see where it could go from here”
While we wait to find out whether the third movie is a big enough hit for The Conjuring 4 to happen, here’s everything you need to know about an expected fourth outing for Ed and Lorraine Warren.
The Conjuring 4 release date
There is no official release date as of yet for Your Conjuring 4. Given that there was a gap of five years between Conjuring 3 and 2, it’d be foolish to expect a fourth film too soon, particularly with all the other spin-offs in the Conjuring Universe.
A projected spin-off entitled The Crooked Man and a sequel to The Nun would be expected to property before a direct Conjuring sequel.
Given there has not even been any debate around a Conjuring 4 script, it’s impossible to see it emerging on screens before 2023 at the earliest.
The Conjuring 4 Story Details
With The Devil Made Me Do It ending in 1981, it’s expected that The Conjuring 4 movie would occur sometime during the 1980s. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga would reunite as Ed and Lorraine Warren, and the Warrens had lots of instances during the decade which could serve as the basis for another film’s story. In 1986, they had a situation that later went on to loosely inspire the 2009 film The Haunting in Connecticut, hence the producers might try to avoid the Warrens’ more famous instances to keep the series fresh. 1 case they can use is the frightening story of the Smurl haunting, which the Warrens investigated in 1986.
The Conjuring Universe has proven to be among the very successful cases of a cinematic universe Outside Marvel or DC. Warner Bros no doubt sees it as a continuously lucrative franchise, and so it can be anticipated that a new Conjuring film is on the horizon after The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.
The Conjuring 4 cast
Conjuring stalwarts Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga have stated they are happy to keep on appearing as everyone’s favorite paranormal investigators — just as well, since they are the heart of the sequence.
Whilst other terror franchises have gone through recurring recastings, it’s difficult to see them doing that with The Conjuring. In case a Conjuring 4 happens, it’s likely to star Wilson and Farmiga.
