In this latest interview with a leading digital hollywood entertainment portal, the solitary maverick and king of horror genre films in Hollywood right from late 2000’s till present day. Noted producer James Wan said 80’s era was natural way ahead for The Conjuring 3.
Best known for creating a super successful horror film franchise with creating the Conjuring universe in Hollywood, Hollywood’s ace film maker James Wan said 80’s era was natural way ahead for The Conjuring 3.
Coming on board this time as a producer and not director for his most famous The Conjuring franchise’s third installment titled, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, James Wan said 80’s era was natural way ahead for The Conjuring 3.
Director James Wan already had the setting of 1980’s era in his mind for Conjuring 3 whilst helming Conjuring 2 five years back in 2016 and this time he is not directing it but is producing the film as a producer and is taking the franchise into new horizons and we all know that he is a prolific director in horror genre who has directed super hit films like Saw and Insidious but The Conjuring franchise is one which made him really popular wherein the first two films released back in 2013 and 2016 took place in 1971 and 1976 and part of their appeal was because these period accurate details called out to horror films of years passed.
Fans who love watching horror movies can get really happy since the much awaited third part of the Conjuring Universe, ‘The Conjuring: the devil made me do it’ is going to be more spine chilling and full of goosebumps compared to his earlier two films and another exciting news here is that this James Wan movie is going to hit both theatres and digital screens on HBO Max at 4th June.
For fans that wouldn’t be able to catch it in theatres, they’ll still be able to watch it on HBO Max digitally.
The Conjuring 3 is going to move into a new era whilst tackling one of Ed and Lorraine Warren’s most controversial cases wherein this pair of paranormal investigators will go to Connecticut for the case of Arne Johnson, who is on trial for murder in 1981 as Arne was first person in history of U.S. who used demonic possession as a legal defense and Warren will have to solve the case both legally and supernaturally as well and also touted already since the Conjuring 3 trailer release as darkest entry till date, Conjuring 3’s foray and entry into the 80’s is not for faint hearted and vulnerable people which is for sure.
At a recent press conference for the Conjuring 3, opening up on how during filming of Conjuring 2 in London, he had told to stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson that he wanted next film to entirely take place in the 1980’s era, James Wan shared, “When we were filming in the streets of London and it was raining, we were doing the raining shot for the ending of Conjuring 2, during a break in photography I remember going to Patrick and Vera and said, ‘Y know what you guys? The next one has to be in the ’80s!’ And I remember Vera said, ‘Yes, I want big earings!’ And so it felt like the natural progression because we had spent a lot of time in the ’70s, and Ed and Lorraine Warren, their cases and their career went from the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, and into the ’90s. And it just felt like the natural progression for us to move into. And aesthetically it just felt like the right thing to do, right? We’ve exhausted the kind of ’70s look and the ’80s was the natural way to go. And sure, now there’s a lot of TV shows and movies that are taking place in ’80s, but it was naturally where the story and the characters and just the period of the story of where it wanted to take us into”.
