Warner Bros. Pictures today revealed at CinemaCon in Las Vegas that The Conjuring 3 will be coming to theaters on September 11, 2020. No other movie is scheduled for that date yet.
James Wan’s The Conjuring films have been highly profitable for the studio’s New Line Cinema, with the first film costing just $20 million to make and grossing $319.5 million worldwide in 2013, while the second movie cost $40 million and made another $320.4 million globally in 2016. That’s not even counting other films in The Conjuring Universe, such as the successful Annabelle films, The Nun, and the upcoming The Curse of La Llorona.
Annabelle Comes Home, the third film, will open in theaters on June 28, but first up is The Curse of La Llorona on April 19. That film is directed by Michael Chaves, who will be taking over the director’s chair from Wan on The Conjuring 3.
Wan will still produce and Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are returning as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who will also appear in smaller roles in Annabelle Comes Home.
A previous report had the story of The Conjuring 3 revolving around a man on trial for murder who claims he was possessed by a demon. David Leslie Johnson is writing the script.
