The Conjuring 4 Is Being Summoned Forth By Returning Producers James Wan And Peter Safran

"The Conjuring" series is one of the most beloved horror franchises that is currently running today. The three main entries follow paranormal investigators the Warrens, played by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, as they encounter ghosts and ghouls that infest unsuspecting victims' homes. While the ghosts and scares are often advertised as the draw for these popular films, the Warrens themselves really are the heart and soul of the main trilogy. 

Besides three successful films in the official trilogy, "The Conjuring" universe has spun off into the haunted doll trilogy of "Annabelle," "Annabelle: Creation," and "Annabelle Comes Home." There's also "The Nun," which is a spin-off prequel to "The Conjuring 2," and "The Curse of La Llorona," which features characters from "The Conjuring" universe. An upcoming sequel to "The Nun" has been announced, which will further expand the franchise. And in addition to that, it looks like we'll be getting another film in "The Conjuring" series proper as "The Conjuring 4" has been announced.

The Conjuring 4 is bringing back some familiar names behind the scenes

Coming from series producers James Wan and Peter Safran, "The Conjuring 4" has been announced with a screenwriter attached to the project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick has been hired to write the upcoming sequel. No stranger to the franchise, Johnson-McGoldrick lent his talents to previous entries "The Conjuring 2" and "The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It." He also recently worked on the screenplay for Wan's upcoming DC film "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom."

Producer James Wan previously directed the first two films in the trilogy, with "The Curse of La Llorona" director Michael Chaves helming the third film. It is unknown who will be directing the fourth entry in the series. Chaves is directing "The Nun 2," which is currently filming in France.

The case the Warrens will be investigating in "The Conjuring 4" is being kept secret at this time. Although not yet official, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are expected to return to their roles for the fifth time in the franchise, according to THR's reporting. They also appeared in "Annabelle Comes Home" in addition to the main "Conjuring" trilogy. No release date has been announced at this time. Fans hoping for one more scare from "The Conjuring" universe are sure to be excited about this new announcement.
