The photos show the film’s 1970s London set as well as cast members Patrick Wilson (Fargo), Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel) and Simon McBurney (The Theory of Everything) in full costume.

Continuing to nurture its horror property into a bona fide franchise, New Line Cinema will be hoping to recapture the spine-chilling essence of 2013’s The Conjuring – not to mention its impressive box office turnover – with upcoming follow-up, The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist.
Horror sequels tend to get a bad rap for regurgitating an overly familiar set-up, thereby failing to induce the tangible nerve-shredding terror that helped make their predecessors so special (read: The Exorcist II: The Heretic), but what lends New Line’s The Conjuring 2 the benefit of the doubt is the fact that James Wan is returning at the helm, and he recently took the film to London.
Sharing a new batch of set photos via Instargam, Wan teased the period setting that the director will be recreating for The Enfield Poltergeist, which is based on a the purported demonic possession that afflicted two young girls in a »

Back in September, production got under way on Warner Bros.' The Conjuring: The Enfield Poltergeist, which started with an actual priest arriving to bless the set. Last month, we got our first look at the Warrens, played by returning stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, in new set photos from director James Wan. Earlier this week, the filmmaker took to his Twitter and Instagram pages again to share even more photos from the set, featuring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and our first look at co-star Simon McBurney.
Production started in Los Angeles this fall, but the shooting has now shifted to London, with James Wan sharing photos of the cast outside of Marylebone Station. The London Underground station has been transformed to resemble the 1970s, and the director has also shared an interior shot, with a large camera crane being situated inside a London pub.

Abhi Sinha has been cast in the role of Harry Whitmark in “The Conjuring 2,” TheWrap has learned. In the sequel to 2013’s “The Conjuring,” starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, Sinha’s character will assist Maurice (Simon McBurney) and Anita (Franka Potente), two paranormal investigators who work alongside the Warren’s, in their research.

He also starred on TV series like “Rizzoli & Isles,” “Greek,” “Bones” and “Scorpion.” Also Read: Warner Bros. Sued by 'The Conjuring' Homeowners Over Scary Fan. »

In the interests of championing, saluting and otherwise generally drawing attention to some of the unsung heroes of the world of cinema, we inaugurated this feature and we have so far admitted some thoroughly deserving films and actors.

Halloween doesn’t have to be over once the last trick-or-treater has crept back into the shadows of the night. You may still be possessed by the spirit of the holiday and in desperate need of some real scares. In an effort to address that need and help you find a choice that goes beyond the usual iconography of the season, I’ve picked three titles that may not immediately jump to mind when it comes to autumn-tinged chills and terror. They are not self-consciously seasonal choices, like John Carpenter’s Halloween or Michael Dougherty’s 2007 anthology Trick ‘R Treat, both excellent choices for cinematic fear on the pumpkin circuit. Two of them rely more on mood, creeping dread, an insinuating style and, dare I say, even a poetic approach to storytelling than the usual Samhain-appropriate fare. And one has an inexplicably bad reputation in the halls of conventional wisdom, »

It won’t be long before that dastardly demonic doll looms onto the silver screen once more, as Variety brings word that New Line is pushing ahead with a follow-up to 2014’s hit horror prequel Annabelle.
Further exploring the murky history of the titular, inanimate object before Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) appeared on the scene as the real-life paranormal investigators, the outlet simply reveals that a sequel is incubating in the early stages of development, with nary a mention of a director attached at this time – nor if it will remain in 1960s California.
In 2014, the studio’s horror offshoot featured the likes of Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton and Alfre Woodard, though there is no official word on whether any of the core cast will return for an exercise in nerve-shredding terror. It was helmed by The Conjuring‘s cinematographer John R. Leonetti, with James Wan »

Though you could technically argue that the sequel to 2014’s horror hit Annabelle should really be The Conjuring, to which it served as a prequel, the team behind the film factored in enough time to allow for other films with the demonic doll. So now her second solo outing is in the works at New Line. It’s perhaps not too much of a surprise, since the film earned more than $245 million worldwide on an estimated budget of $6.5 million. Gary Dauberman, who provided the script for that one is back on duty here, though according to Variety, no one else is aboard yet.The first Annabelle, which told an early story of the possessed doll that was shown in the initial scene of The Conjuring and was causing problems long before paranormal investigators Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) happened upon it, followed a young couple whose home »
James Wan may have sent Universal’s Fast and Furious juggernaut careering into the fabled billion-dollar club earlier this year, but the filmmaker is taking a firm step back from ten-second cars and the blockbuster scene in general to helm The Conjuring: The Enfield Poltergeist. With production now well underway on the director’s horror sequel – given the spiritual go-ahead after a priest was drafted in to bless the set – Wan has taken to Twitter to share a photo from the set.
Heralding the return of the Warrens – played once again by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson – the photo is more of a behind-the-scenes peak at the New Line set, rather than a teaser of the actual plot. Still, any indication that Wan is returning to his horror roots gets two thumbs up in our book. The second photo is lifted from Farmiga’s own Twitter, captioned ‘Gholbusters.’ When »

With filming now underway on New Line Cinema's follow-up to 2013's The Conjuring, the onscreen duo of Ed and Lorraine Warren are back in business, and director James Wan recently shared a new on-set photo from the film.
It's believed that The Conjuring sequel will focus on a poltergeist that haunted a council house in the north London suburb of Enfield from 1977–1979. The house was rented by Peggy Hodgson, a single mother raising four children at the time.
Moving furniture, levitating kids, and a ghost's communication through one of the daughters all supposedly took place within the home's walls, prompting Ed and Lorraine to pay the Hodgson family a visit.
Although an official plot synopsis has yet to be revealed, Frances O »

Last month, production got under way on the horror sequel The Conjuring: The Enfield Poltergeist, with director James Wan and New Line Cinema sending out the first set photos featuring a priest blessing the set. We haven't seen much since then, but today, James Wan released a new photo, which gives us our first look at stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson. The actors, along with their director, are seated next to a rather large recording device while shooting in Los Angeles.
Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson reprise their roles as Lorraine and Ed Warren from the 2013 thriller The Conjuring, based on their actual cases as paranormal investigators.

Filmmaker Debra Granik earned an impressive four Oscar nominations for 2010's "Winter's Bone," including best picture, actress (Jennifer Lawrence), supporting actor (John Hawkes) and adapted screenplay. Clearly all the talent on display in 2004's "Down to the Bone," which boosted the career of Vera Farmiga, was not a flash in the pan. What was the deliberate New York filmmaker, who works closely with producer-writer Anne Rossellini, going to do next? Well, she pursued several promising projects that have yet to come to fruition. Among them were "American High Life," a possible HBO series created by young writer Nicki Paluga, and Granik's film version of Russell Banks' novel "Rule Of The Bone," marking the third part of her unofficial osteo-trilogy, about an abused 14-year-old Jamaican-American who turns to drugs, gets kicked out of his home, and returns to Jamaica to find his father. Banks was optimistic that a cast of unknowns and names would. »

The couple who own the spooky house that inspired The Conjuring have been doing some summoning of their own - in the form of a lawsuit.
Norma Sutcliffe and Gerald Helfrich - owners of the Rhode Island property since 1987 - have filed suit against Warner Bros over a "Conjuring-instigated siege of their property", according to court documents obtained by Entertainment Weekly.
They are claiming they've been deluged by aggressive and sometimes threatening fans of the horror movie since The Conjuring's 2013 release.
In their lawsuit, Sutcliffe and Helfrich say they are dealing with threats of "physical violence and harm, sleepless nights, and worry that one day, one of the many trespassers will commit an act of destruction, violence, or harm".
The couple hold Warner Bros responsible for making and releasing the movie without their approval, the lawsuit states.
An international casting search was held to find the young cast for The Conjuring 2, the new supernatural thriller following on from the success of The Conjuring, with director James Wan, and stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson reprising their roles of renowned demonologists Lorraine and Ed Warren.
In a new terrifying paranormal investigation they travel to North London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.
