The studio began developing “The Nun” last June, shortly after “The Conjuring 2” opened. Producers are James Wan, who directed the two “Conjuring” movies and produced the sequel, and Peter Safran, who produced both movies. The current script for “The Nun” is written by Gary Dauberman and Wan.
The demon nun came to life in “The Conjuring 2” from a painting by Patrick Wilson’s paranormal investigator Ed Warren and later attacked Vera Farmiga’s Lorraine Warren. Vera and Taissa Farmiga are sisters.
“The Conjuring 2” deals with the 1977 case of demonic possession of an 11-year-old British girl, played by Madison Wolfe.
New Line has already successfully spun off 2014’s “Annabelle” from the demonic doll from 2013’s “The Conjuring.” “Annabelle” was a massive hit with $256 million worldwide on a $6 million budget, with a sequel set for an August release. “The Conjuring” and “The Conjuring 2” each grossed $320 million worldwide.
New Line announced on Feb. 2 that it had hired Hardy for “The Nun,” which will be released next year on July 13 — Friday the 13th.
Taissa Farmiga is in production on “What They Had,” opposite Michael Shannon and Hilary Swank. She is repped by ICM Partners and Anonymous Content. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.

American Horror Story: Roanoke just might be the new gold standard when it comes to a game-changing twist that changes everything—and the reason you could fall off your couch on Wednesday night.
E! News has learned that starting this week, for the first time in American Horror Story (TV?) history, the show’s core cast—including Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Kathy Bates—will start playing different roles halfway through the season. “It’s a radical twist, a completely new form of storytelling,” co-creator Ryan Murphy tells E! News of the episode, which catapults the show into an entirely different direction.
Plus, some long-awaited news for fans: Taissa Farmiga is back! And we will finally get to seeFinn Wittrock return and play the “most f–ked-up character of all time,” according to Murphy, who also teases some deliciousness ahead for fan favorite Evan Peters. Evan and Taissa and Finn and a mind-blowing twist…It’s the stuff that (f–ked-up) dreams are made of, y’all.
Who else is coming back?
Finn Wittrock is coming back soon, playing his most f–ked-up character of all time. To the point where he was like, ‘This is so crazy that I don’t know that I can do it, but I’ll do it.’ And Taissa Farmiga is coming back for the first time ever since Coven, in I think a really, really great part and we love her. We’re very excited—she’s a part of our world and always will be, and I always wanted her to come back.
