The Conjuring 4 doesn’t have an official release date yet but we now know that it will be the last movie in the series. The fourth entry in the acclaimed horror series will see the return of director Michael Chaves, who previously directed The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. James Wan, the director of the first two Conjuring movies, will return as a producer.
As revealed by The Hollywood Reporter, The Conjuring 4 is set to be the last movie in the series and it’s officially titled The Conjuring: Last Rites. It will see the return of Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson who play Lorraine and Ed Warren, respectively. The plot of the movie is still being kept tightly under wraps though some speculate that it might involve the duo’s most notorious real-life case which inspired The Amityville Horror, a case that was briefly touched upon in the opening scene of the second movie.
The Conjuring: Last Rites will also welcome back David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick as the screenwriter. He also previously wrote The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, which was also based on an actual case that the Warrens investigated which led to big changes in the court system after a murderer claimed that he was possessed while committing the crime.
While The Conjuring 4 will be the last movie in the series, there’s still more Conjuring content in the works. HBO Max announced last year that it was developing a TV series based on the IP, though we’ve heard little about it since its announcement last April.
In other news, director James Wan previously said that he’d like to return to the horror genre after Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom. Wan is best known for directing the first Saw movie as well as Insidious, The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2 and Malignant, among other horror movies. Wan also directed Fast and Furious 7 as well as the first Aquaman movie.
