• "The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It" may be delayed to 2021
  • Nothing has been confirmed just yet as the production studio is still assessing its postponement
  • Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" may be prioritized for release

Warner Bros.’ “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” release date may reportedly be delayed to 2021.

Although film and TV show delays no longer come as a surprise amid the coronavirus pandemic, more and more releases are apparently still being considered for postponement by large film production studios.

Movie theater chains like AMC are slated to open in July for new releases like “Tenet” and “Mulan,” though nothing is for certain considering the massive spike in coronavirus cases across the nation, Screen Rant reported.

Now, the much-awaited third installment of “The Conjuring” may join the growing list of delayed film releases.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. is reconsidering the Sept. 11 release date for “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,” to next year. The firm has yet to verify the postponement, and an exact date hasn’t officially been set by the production studio.

Warner Bros.’ “Conjuring” universe has seen massive success over the years, resulting in extensive sequels and numerous spin-offs.

“The Conjuring” kicked off the horror movie franchise in 2013. It was followed by a second installment that garnered relatively positive reviews and earned an impressive $320 million.

“The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” will be the franchise’s latest follow-up, and just like its predecessors, the installment is based on a real case file of paranormal experts Ed and Lorraine Warren. Per Screen Rant, the film’s subtitle follows the name of Arne Cheyenne Johnson’s murder trial—one of the Warrens’ most famous cases.

Meanwhile, “Conjuring” universe spin-offs like “Annabelle” and “The Nun” each gained varying successes and positive reviews since their release in theaters.

If Warner Bros. does confirm the delay of “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” to 2021, the studio may pave the way for Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” release, while also protecting its estimated $2 billion film investment in the “Conjuring” franchise.

Other Warner Bros.’ films such as “Wonder Woman: 1984,” “Tom and Jerry” and “The Matrix” have also been pushed back from their original launch schedules.
