The latest film from James Wan The Conjuring 2 is already off to a stellar first weekend with a 40 million dollar opening. It is right on track with its predecessor The Conjuring and likely to end up with the same results. A big part of the success of the film has to do with the creative genius that is James Wan. The director has been a pretty huge part of the horror scene for the 21st century and continues to deliver.
James Wan is the man responsible for the Saw series, Insidious, and of course The Conjuring, all of which are classics in their own sense. The movie series all have done fantastic with movie goers that they’ve all spawned sequels. We have Saw that is at a total of 7 movies, Insidious with 3 and The Conjuring is now at 2. The real question is will this be the last of The Conjuring or is there still more to see with the Warrens?The Warrens have had way more than 2 case files during their time investigating the paranormal so there’s still plenty to tell.
One thing to answer is where do we go now after demonic possessions and hauntings? The answer might be something you probably hadn’t thought about and that’s werewolves! Yes, I know it sounds crazy but that doesn’t mean you should throw that out just yet, at least James Wan thinks so. In an interview with , the director was asked about the possibility for a third film to examine lycanthropy. The director had a quick and pretty funny response to this
Maybe we can go and do it like a classic American Werewolf in London style. That would be awesome! The Warrens set against the backdrop of The Hound of Baskerville. That would be awesome. Thank you! [laughter]
It seems that Wan was really amused with the question and played along with it, but what if they really did try and make this a movie? The idea behind this would definitely be drawn and inspired by a book that Ed Warren published in 1991. A book titled Werewolf: A True Story of Demonic Possession could definitely serve as the backdrop for The Conjuring 3. It seems whether they go with the werewolves or not, they are planning for future movies. According to Wan himself, they have been doing their research already with Warren’s cases.
They have a lot of cases. I’m not sitting there sifting through every single one, but I think, you know, between the writers and the studio, I think they have a short list of their favorite, like basically the top 20 or 30 of the Warren’s favorite cases.
It looks like Warner Bro’s is really setting The Conjuring up to be in the likes of the Saw franchise with many possible sequels. James Wan, however, is currently busy on the comic book side of the movie with Aquaman so it’s not clear if he would return to The Conjuring. I would surely hope the director does come back to wrap up the series if there is, in fact, more sequels in the works. The director just has a way with the camera that you truly know what you’re watching is magic.
