Warner Bros. Pictures presented The Nun on September 7, 2018, in the US. While praising the performances and setting, many faulted the film’s weak plot and illogical reasoning. It became the series’ highest-grossing movie with a global take of $365 million. The Nun 2, which is being directed by Michael Chaves and co-produced by James Wan and Peter Safran, is now in production. As Sister Irene, Taissa Farmiga is coming back for New Line’s The Nun 2. She joins previously announced Storm Reid in the follow-up to The Nun from 2018.
With Cynthia Nixon and Carrie Coon, Farmiga is currently filming season two of Julian Fellowes’ HBO series The Gilded Age. She last appeared in Pascual Sisto’s Sundance 2021-premiered film John and the Hole. Farmiga played in Ryan Murphy’s FX series American Horror Story as well as the New Group’s production of Buried Child, which won Sam Shepard the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Darrell and Kirby Howell-Baptiste She Taught Love, a romantic comedy starring Britt-Gibson and Taissa Farmiga, will be helmed by Nate Edwards from a script by Britt-Gibson. Despite the fact that Taissa Farmiga and Vera Farmiga, who plays Lorraine Warren in the Conjuring franchise, are sisters, their roles are unconnected. The movie NUN 2 will debut on September 8, 2023.
The screenplay was written by Akela Cooper, with recent edits made by Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing. Peter Safran and James Wan of The Safran Company will produce the film. All eight instalments of The Conjuring franchise were produced by Wan and Safran.
The Nun 2018 ($365.5M), The Conjuring 2 ($322M WW), The Conjuring ($320M WW), and Annabelle: Creation ($307M WW) are the four Conjuring films that have made the most money globally, placing them in the top 10 horror films of all time. The other three are also in the top thirty.
