Since 2013, Warner Bros. Conjuring the films accompanied payments on the main line and repercussions for various villains of the Warren family. But all scary things must come to an end, and the next The Conjuring 4 aims to end the mothership series.
By the hollywood reporter, Michael Chaves has been hired to direct the new film. All of his previous films have been Conjuring ramifications such as The Curse of La Llorona And The Nun II, with the previous main film, The Conjuring: The devil made me do it. This new film, subtitled Last rites, will once again star Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine Warren as they face another supernatural problem that only they can solve. Filming is expected to take place this summer in Atlanta.
Interestingly, THR notes that Conjuring 4 will be the final entry in the main series. What does this mean for the rest of the Conjuring the universe is up in the air: James Wan, a key creative for the entire company, took his Atomic Monster banner at Blumhouse. (Colleagues like Gary Dauberman, David F. Sandberg and Akela Cooper have joined Wan or are focusing on their own projects.) A Conjuring The TV show was announced in April 2023, but it's entirely possible that WB will have quietly given it the ax by then. It's doubtful Last rites will mark the complete end of THE Conjuring in total, but it would allow WB to take a few years off and revamp the franchise with a new creative team on hand.
