James Wan won’t direct The Conjuring 3, but a familiar horror face will. Get a detailed look at Captain Marvel in new concept art. Plus, new footage from a ton of films and TV, including Robin Hood, Halloween and Supergirl. To me, my spoilers!
Deadline reports Jocelin Donahue (All The Creatures Were Stirring, Insidious: Chapter 2, The House of the Devil) has joined the cast in a currently undisclosed role.
Deadline also reports Michelle Williams has signed on to play astronaut Christa McAuliffe in a new film on the Challenger disaster.
The Conjuring 3
According to THR, James Wan has stepped aside from directing a third Conjuring movie, instead handing the reigns to Michael Chaves (The Curse of La Llorona).
Speaking with Screen Rant, Peyton Reed stated he’s hopeful for a third entry in the series.
Well, I hope that we get to do a third one. I’m being completely sincere when I say we really don’t know yet, because I know in the run up to the next Avengers movie, everything is being played very, very close to the vest. But as we were writing and shooting this movie, we certainly set things up in this movie that we hope we get to pay off. And we talked a lot about everybody’s arcs and where we want everybody to go next. So, I’m really hopeful that we’ll get to do a third one, because I really do. I really have fallen in love with these characters and I think there’s a lot more story to tell with them.
Marvel’s Andy Park has released his official concept art for Captain Marvel on Twitter.
I absolutely LOVED creating this design of @brielarson as #CaptainMarvel ! Based on the awesome comic book looks by @McKelvie & @kristaferanka It was a pleasure taking those & translating it for the big screen & for the story we are telling on this film. @MarvelStudios pic.twitter.com/4lNWin4Imz
