James Wan Reveals Plot for ‘The Conjuring 3’

Published

on

James Wan is set to dive into the Conjuring universe yet again, which will be another story from the Warrens’ case files.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are both set to return for their roles for Wan’s ‘The Conjuring 3, with Michael Chaves (The Curse of La Llorona) in the director’s chair, and Wan will be again focusing on the Warren’s legendary investigations.

“It’s not necessarily based on an artifact but it’s based on one of the Warrens’ case files,” Wan said, during an interview with Bloody Disgusting.

“All the Conjuring films are based on the case files, so they’re more based on the true story aspect of the real life Warrens. I think that’s important. It’s important that the mothership stays true to the inspiration of the real people. The spinoffs are where we get to have more fun and do weird and wonderful crazy things. The mothership of it being the Conjuring films, we want it to come back to the real stuff.”

The movie will tell the story of a man on trial claiming he was possessed at the time of a murder.

“It’s this guy who was on trial for committing a murder,” Wan said. “I think it’s the first time in America’s history where the defendant used possessions as a reason, as an excuse.”

“I’ve been a big fan of that story, of that world,” Wan said. “I think it’s really cool to look at other culture. I’d love to explore more Asian centric stories.”

Wan also talked about being impressed with Chaves’ work on The Curse of La Llorona.

“He definitely did,” Wan said. “I feel like he’s this young up and coming filmmaker in this world. He’s a guy that understands how these films work. He’s really great working with actors and I feel like that’s something I want and need to work with, someone that people like Patrick and Vera would feel comfortable with.”

IFC Films has acquired Australian film maker Jennifer Kent’s new film ‘The Nightingale’, which will be a part of the Sundance Film Festival, according to Variety.

Kent is best known for her hit ‘The Babadook’.

Starring Sam Clafin, Damon Herriman, Ewen Leslie, Harry Greenwood, Baykali Ganambarr, and Magnolia Maymuru, the film’s synopsis states;

Set in Tasmania in 1825, The Nightingale follows a 21-year-old Irish female convict (Aisling Franciosi) who witnesses the brutal murder of her husband and baby by her soldier master and his cronies. Unable to find justice, she takes an Aboriginal male tracker with her through the hellish wilderness to seek revenge on the men.”

Variety, who reported the news, also interviewed Kent about the new film.

“The film is a study on violence and what a violent mind and therefore a violent society can do to damage the human spirit,” Kent said.

“It’s about how we can evolve through and beyond that violence. For me ‘The Nightingale’ is about love — not in a schmaltzy way — but its power to allow us to evolve as human beings.”

‘The Babadook’ was one of our most successful acquisitions at IFC and we could not be happier to continue our partnership with Jennifer on her next feature”Lisa Schwartz, co-president of IFC Films said .

“She is undoubtedly one of the most talented writer/directors working today and we can’t wait to share ‘The Nightingale’ with audiences across the country.”
