The Conjuring 3 rumors have been circulating following the success of its second installment earlier this year. According to reports, director James Wan is planning to take on a different route to conclude the rumored trilogy.
In an interview with Cinema Blend, the filmmaker expressed his excitement in doing something similar to An American Werewolf in London. The 80?s classic was about a werewolf who preyed and attacked college students on the streets of London.
The movie has been categorized under the horror genre, but it did have several comedic undertones. This makes for an interesting twist if The Conjuring 3 will indeed be similar to An American Werewolf in London.
Aside from featuring werewolves, the rumored new angle for Conjuring will also reportedly highlight demonic attacks. This will make it similar to a 1991 book entitled Werewolf: A True Story of Demonic Possession.
Created by Ed Warren, the novel narrated one of his investigations with wife Lorraine Warren. The two were known for being paranormal investigators who also took on The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle.
While many are excited over The Conjuring 3 rumors, some cannot help but wonder if the movie will be as successful as the first two versions. The previous installment reportedly raked in $40 million during its opening weekend. Majority of the reviews from viewers and veteran film analysts were also positive.
As for the timetable of the third installment, reports claimed that The Conjuring 3 might be released around 2018. This is still uncertain though, especially since James Wan is busy directing other projects.
The 39-year-old Malaysian-Australian is reportedly doing superhero film Aquaman. He has also been chosen by Fox to produce Malignant Man alongside San Andreas director Brad Peyton.
James Wan also has previously stated that he is open to having other filmmakers direct the third Conjuring film. With a new director and plot, fans would wonder how the third installment will fare.
