Taissa Farmiga returns for La Nun 2 – Actus Ciné | Film-News.co.uk


Taissa Farmiga returns for ‘The Nun 2’.

The 28-year-old star will reprise her role as sister Irene in the horror sequel and is expected to join “Euphoria” actress Storm Reid in the project.

Michael Chaves will direct the film after directing “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,” the final installment in the “Conjuring” horror universe.

“The Nun” was a prequel spin-off to “The Conjuring 2” and featured Bonnie Aarons as a demonic nun.

The film was set in a monastery in 1952 and told the story of a priest and a nun – played by Demian Bichir and Farmiga respectively – trying to fight off the nun’s evil possessions.

The film became the highest-grossing installment in the “Conjuring” franchise.

Suite details are being kept under wraps, but the 1950s decor is expected to remain.

James Wan and Peter Safran produce through their Atomic Monster and The Safran Company banners. The couple produced all eight films in the “Conjuring” universe.

“The Nun 2” is slated for release in September 2023, with filming on the film expected to begin later this month.

Corin Hardy directed the original 2018 film and revealed that Wan passed behind the camera as the director of the second unit.

The filmmaker recalled, “Very exciting, James Wan was my second unit director in some extra photography.

“It’s funny, but we’ve done a few more shots, and you’re always pushing for double what you can really afford, in terms of time or budget. I said, ‘I want to do all of this, but if we’re going to do that, we really need to run two units.

“James is a full guy and he was like, ‘Anything I can do to be of service! It was like, ‘I really want to talk to you about this.’ So there were nights he was shooting a section in the forest and I was shooting interiors.”
