Yesterday it was reported that the Conjuring 2 was pushed to 2016, but why?
Now we have a reason to wait for the horror sequel, James Wan is coming back to direct the movie. He is a very talented guy, I’m glad he is back. While is good to see he is expanding himself as a director, now that he is working in Fast & Furious 7. Wan is returning, but not only that, he has a deal with New Line. Warner announced a bunch of DC Comics movies recently (sorry I didn’t cover that story. Too busy.)
My guess is that they’re locking him for the Shazam film. “Make one for us, then you can make one for yourself.”
If what I’m thinking is true, it could work as Peter Berg’s deal. Peter did Battleship and then he directed The Lone Survivor. I’m assuming Wan will direct Shazam at some point.
Anyways, I don’t mind waiting if this guy, who made a great modern horror movie is coming back for the sequel. Nice excuse, Warner.
