• "The Conjuring 3" will have a different formula
  • The plot will be about a murder suspect claming demonic possession
  • Ed and Lorraine will be back

“The Conjuring 3” will build on the success of the first two movies and bring a new horror story for the fans. However, screenplay writer of the threequel David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick has teased that the movie will be very different from what the fans are used to from the franchise.

The third instalment of the franchise will be trying a new experiment. While interacting with the fans in a Twitter Q&A, McGoldirck teased that they are moving away from the “haunted house” formula that has worked so well for the first two films. The writer said that the new project is a “completely different movie than the first two.”

The paranormal investigating couple Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) will be back to investigate another “sensational” case. The title of the film is “The Devil Made Me Do It,” and the plot is about a murder suspect who will claim demonic possession as his defence, Collider reported.

According to the official plot synopsis, the film will begin with Ed and Lorraine fighting to save a boy’s soul. Events culminate into them being called in as experts when a murder suspect uses demonic possession as his defence.

The legal case in the third film makes it different from the first two movies in which the couple investigated supernatural spirits haunting houses and terrified families asked them to help. Instead of a house, the couple may have to conduct their interviews in a prison cell in the next movie in order to find out the truth.

Filming of the horror flick began in June last year and Farmiga announced that she wrapped filming in August, Screen Rant reported. Along with Farmiga’s character, the fans will also get to see a younger Lorraine and a younger Ed.

“The Conjuring 3” has been directed by Michael Chaves. It will be released on Sept. 11.
