There were several supernatural entities that paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren faced in The Conjuring 2, and after the news broke earlier this year that the phantasmal nun is getting her own film, another spinoff movie is now officially in the works, this one focused on the Crooked Man.
According to THR, a spinoff movie about the Crooked Man (reportedly titled The Crooked Man) is in the works at New Line Cinema, which has set Mike Van Waes to write the screenplay from a story by James Wan, the director of the first two Conjuring films.
Along with Peter Safran, Wan will also produce the film, which is the latest in a growing shared cinematic universe of characters from The Conjuring movies, with The Nun slated to come out on July 13th, 2018 and Annabelle: Creation (the second film about the haunted doll) scheduled for an August 11th release.
Like the Nun, the Crooked Man (a character from the English nursery rhyme "There Was a Crooked Man") provided viewers with ample amounts of nightmare fuel when his long limbs and lean frame (not unlike Slender Man or the Endgrave from the Stoney Creek podcast) stalked the halls of the Enfield house in The Conjuring 2. Actor and incredible contortionist Javier Botet portrayed the Crooked Man in the Conjuring sequel.
Casting details and a release date have yet to be announced, but we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated on The Crooked Man as more details are revealed. In the meantime, are you excited to see the Crooked Man get his own film?
