James Wan has only produced the third movie, with The Curse of La Llorona's Michael Chaves taking over as director, while The Conjuring 2 co-writer David Leslie Johnson has returned to write the threequel.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (also known as The Conjuring 3) is an upcoming American supernatural horror film directed by Michael Chaves, with a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick from a story by Johnson-McGoldrick and James Wan. The film will serve as a sequel to 2013's The Conjuring and 2016's The Conjuring 2, and as the eighth installment overall in the Conjuring Universe franchise. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will be reprising their roles as paranormal investigators and authors Ed and Lorraine Warren, with Ruairi O'Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, and Julian Hilliard also starring. Wan and Peter Safran are returning to co-produce the project. The film is based on the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, a murder trial that took place in 1981 in Connecticut.
The Conjuring : The Devil Made Me Do It Release Date :
As mentioned above, the third movie was set for release on September 11, 2020 before Warner Bros made the decision to delay it to May 28 in UK cinemas and June 4 in US cinemas.
The movie will also be able to watch on HBO Max in the US for 31 days from June 4, like every other Warner Bros release in 2021. HBO Max is not currently available in countries outside of the US.

The official synopsis reads: “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It reveals a chilling story of terror, murder and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
“One of the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they’d ever seen before, to mark the first time in US history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.”
The Conjuring 3 is the first film in the main series to have a subtitle – the movie’s full title is The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.
As with the first two movies, the movie focuses on another real case investigated by Ed and Lorraine. The case this time is the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, a man who in 1981 had been charged with killing his landlord but plead innocence on the grounds of demonic possession – the first time in US history that such a defence had been argued.

The Warrens got involved in the case as they had taken part in the exorcism of David Glatzel – it was also claimed it was the same demon in both cases.
Alongside this Arne case there have been rumours that a werewolf might have some kind of involvement in the film – with Vera Farmiga telling Metro US back in 2018 that “the last I heard it had something to do with some Werewolf case.”
And the likelihood of a werewolf cropping up in some capacity seems even more likely given Patrick Wilson’s comments to The Hollywood Reporter in November 2019 that the film “will be a really nice addition because it’s definitely a different beast. Pun intended.”
He added: “Again, we are pushing our characters to places they haven’t gone, but the film will be a really nice addition because it’s definitely a different beast. Pun intended.”
What we do know for certain is the threequel will be something quite different, no haunted houses, but more real life inspiration. Wan said: “All the Conjuring films are based on the case files, so they’re more based on the true story aspect of the real-life Warrens. I think that’s important. It’s important that the mothership stays true to the inspiration of the real people,” he explained.
“The spinoffs are where we get to have more fun and do weird and wonderful crazy things. The mothership of it being the Conjuring films, we want it to come back to the real stuff.”
Chaves has also teased this movie is on a “whole different level” telling IGN: “I a lot of ways, this is the biggest Conjuring movie”.
When Chaves showed the final cut to Vera and her husband, they apparently said “This is the darkest Conjuring movie.”
It does seem this case cuts closer to home with a real life manslaughter case, no haunted homes insight this time…
