The studio began developing “The Nun” last June, shortly after “The Conjuring 2” opened. Producers are James Wan, who directed the two “Conjuring” movies and produced the sequel, and Peter Safran, who produced both movies. The current script for “The Nun” is written by Gary Dauberman and Wan.
The demon nun came to life in “The Conjuring 2” from a painting by Patrick Wilson’s paranormal investigator Ed Warren and later attacked Vera Farmiga’s Lorraine Warren. “The Conjuring 2” deals with the 1977 case of demonic possession of an 11-year-old British girl, played by Madison Wolfe.

"Its given me everything: money, love." "At what cost?" Broad Green has revealed a trailer for a horror film titled Wish Upon, about a teenager in high school who starts messing around with a mysterious magic box that her father brings home one day. The box grants her wishes that she uses to make her life better, but of course things start to go wrong and different people start to die after she makes a wish. This reminds me a bit of Richard Kelly's The Box. Joey King (seen in The Conjuring, White House Down, Wish I Was Here, Stonewall) stars, along with Sherilyn Fenn, Ryan Phillippe, Elisabeth Röhm, Shannon Purser, Ki Hong Lee, Sydney Park and Alice Lee. This actually looks fun, I always love mystery boxes. Take a look. Here's the first official trailer for John R. Leonetti's Wish Upon, originally from Yahoo: Years after her mother's suicide, »
