Warner Bros. has announced today they have moved their Conjuring spinoff THE NUN from July to September 7, 2018.
Corin Hardy directs Nun from It scribe Gary Dauberman’s screenplay. Dauberman is also EP; and he co-wrote the story with James Wan. Taissa Farmiga stars as Sister Irene, and Demian Bichir stars as Father Burke. The latter is sent to Rome to investigate the death of a Nun.
Warner Bros. and New Line know there’s a horror audience that’s ready and available to come out for frights in the period following the sluggish Labor Day weekend.
It’s a smart move for the studios because last year’s IT debuted at the same time last year and we all know how well it did. Let’s hope the same holds true for The Nun.
