New Line Cinema’s supernatural thriller “The Conjuring 2,” with James Wan (“Furious
7”) once again at the helm following the record-breaking success of “The Conjuring,” brings to
the screen another real case from the files of renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren.
Reprising their roles, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga (“Up In the Air,” TV’s “Bates
Motel”) and Patrick Wilson (the “Insidious” films), star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who, in one
of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother
raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.
The film follows the phenomenal worldwide reception of Wan’s “The Conjuring,” which
marked the largest opening ever for an original horror movie. The film went on to make more
than $319 million worldwide and still remains the second highest grossing original horror movie
of all time, second only to “The Exorcist.”
Rounding out the cast are Frances O’Connor (TV’s “The Missing”) as the single mom,
with Madison Wolfe (TV’s “Zoo”) and newcomers Lauren Esposito, Patrick McAuley and
Benjamin Haigh as her children; Maria Doyle Kennedy (TV’s “Orphan Black”); Simon Delaney
(TV’s “Roy”); Franka Potente (TV’s “The Bridge”); and Simon McBurney (“Mission
Impossible: Rogue Nation”).
The screenplay is by Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes & James Wan and David Leslie
Johnson, story by Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes & James Wan.
Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, who previously collaborated on “The Conjuring,” are
producing with Wan. The executive producers are Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener, Walter
Hamada and Dave Neustadter.
Collaborating with Wan behind-the-scenes is Oscar-nominated director of photography
Don Burgess (“Forrest Gump,” “42”). Reuniting with the director from “The Conjuring” are
production designer Julie Berghoff, editor Kirk Morri, costume designer Kristin Burke, and
composer Joseph Bishara.
New Line Cinema presents a Safran Company/Atomic Monster Production, a James Wan
film, “The Conjuring 2.” Scheduled for release on June 10, 2016, the film will be distributed by
Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
