One of the next films in the ‘Conjuring Universe’ is “Anabelle 3”. While “Anabelle: Creation”, the second instalment in this series, was a prequel to the first one, this one will bring viewers to the future. It will be written and directed by Gary Dauberman, the screenwriter of “The Nun”. He announced that shooting will begin mid-October and that “Anabelle 3” will be set in the Warrens’ house. This horror film will be about what happens when the doll comes into the artifact room.
In a recent interview, Ryan Gosling announced that he would be willing to act in a Batman film directed by Damien Chazelle. The actor has collaborated with the latter for the picture “La La Land” and “First Man”. He is quite famous for his roles in drama and comedy productions. However, he did not work in any superhero movies even if his name was associated to motion pictures like “Suicide Squad” and “Doctor Strange”. Despite Ryan Gosling’s comment, which was made to support the director, it is very unlikely that this project will come true.
According to reports, filming of the motion picture “The Conjuring 3” will start in 2019. This news was confirmed by Peter Safran, producer of ‘The Conjuring’ franchise, while he was giving an interview for the promotion of “The Nun”. He asserted that the screenplay of the movie is “coming along great” and that he is aiming for a 2020 release. This project was approved by Warner Bros. in early 2017. David Leslie Johnson, the screenwriter of “The Conjuring 2”, was appointed to write its script. However, the exact start date is not yet known.
Warner Bros. has released some pretty good movies in the past month. It first launched the film “The Meg” by Jon Turteltaub on the 8th of August. This was followed by “Crazy Rich Asians” which was a huge success. On the 7th of September, the production “The Nun” hit the theatres. Thanks to this film, the studio has been at the first place of the box office for six consecutive weeks. Currently, the three motion pictures mentioned above are among the top four of the “Weekend Box Office” chart.
Directed by Corin Hardy, “The Nun” is the fifth instalment in The Conjuring Universe. It is a gothic supernatural horror movie written by Gary Dauberman. The film stars Demián Bichir, Taissa Farmiga and Jonas Bloquet and is a spin-off of “The Conjuring 2” which was released in 2016. It follows a priest and a novice to Romania. They are sent there by the Vatican to investigate the mysterious death of a young nun. Once on the site, they confront a malevolent demonic force.
All of the productions from this succession of films have been quite successful. In fact, this franchise can be considered as the most profitable one for Warner Bros. Within the first three days of its release only, “The Nun” earned $53.5 million. It has even surpassed the original movie from this series, “The Conjuring”, which made $41.9 million when it was launched in 2013.
The actor Jim Carrey is very famous for his comedy roles. One of his most popular films is “Liar Liar”. Released in 1997, this motion picture was a huge success. It earned $302.7 million at the box office and also received several positive reviews. Carrey acted as Fletcher Reede in this film. However, he had another secret part; a cameo in which he paid tribute to one of his other characters. He played the role of Fire Marshall Bill, who was a persona in the sketch comedy show “In Living Color”, in a scene near the end of the movie. He is in the crowd behind Maura Tierney and Cary Elwes when they are talking to an airport official.
Fans will be able to watch several “Joker” movies during the coming years. Currently, Warner Bros. is working on various productions starring the villain. One of these will be directed by Todd Phillips. It is reported that this particular motion picture will recount an origin story taking place in the 80s and will introduce the famous character.
Being one of the most popular Batman villains and one of the most successful ‘supervillains’ of DC, The Joker has been depicted in different ways in various comic books, television shows or movies. Several actors have acted as this crazed clown. For instance, this role was taken by Heath Ledger in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight”. For Todd Phillips’s film, Joaquin Phoenix has been cast to play the protagonist. While sometimes there are fan outcries when an actor is hired for the role of superheroes and villains, that did not happen when Phoenix was taken on board. It is reported that the latter was joined by Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, and Marc Maron. Despite the fact that there is another Joker movie being made, Todd Phillips’s film is an intriguing one. The director is usually famous for his comedies. However, he is considered to be a good choice for this DC movie since The Joker has a dark sense of humour.
In 2012, it was rumoured that Dwayne Johnson would star in a Lobo movie for Warner Bros. and DC. However, the film was never made and the actor collaborated with its director Brad Peyton for other projects. Recently, during an appearance at Walker Stalker Con, Jeffrey Dean Morgan stated that he wished to play the character Lobo in a movie. He said that the DC antihero was a “badass”. When Johnson heard of this, he showed his support via Twitter, giving his official approval to Morgan taking the role.
