Filmmaker James Wan, director of the record-setting horror hits The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, explores another dark corner of that universe with THE NUN. Directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow), the new fright-fest is produced by Wan and by Peter Safran, who has produced all the films in The Conjuring franchise.
THE NUN stars Oscar nominated Demian Bichir as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene, and Jonas Bloquet as local villager Frenchie.
Our reporter Mariana Medina had the opportunity to sat down with Demián Bichir, in Miami, to talk about his role, his experience doing this film, and more. THE NUN is now playing!
About the film
When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in The Conjuring 2, as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.
The cast also includes Charlotte Hope as the abbey’s Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu as Sister Oana, and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her Conjuring 2 role as the title character.
Hardy directs THE NUN from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman, story by James Wan & Gary Dauberman. Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear and Todd Williams are the executive producers.
Joining Hardy behind the scenes are director of photography Maxime Alexandre, production designer Jennifer Spence, editors Michel Aller and Ken Blackwell, and costume designer Sharon Gilham. The music is by Abel Korzeniowski.
