You cannot keep The art of magic franchise down. The series has grossed over $2.1 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing horror series out there. THR has reported that Storm Reid (Euphoria) has been given a leading role in the next part of the franchise, The nun 2.
The first film took place in a convent in 1952 and followed a young nun (Taissa Farmiga) and a priest (Demian Bichir) as they confronted a demonic force that took the form of an evil nun. Though The nun received the lowest reviews in the franchise, it was also the highest-grossing installment of any of the films. We don’t know much about The nun 2 yet, only that it will still take place in The 1950s and features the return of Bonnie Aaron as Valak/The Nun. Details about who Storm Reid might play in the sequel are being kept under wraps. Storm Reid can currently be seen on HBO’s Euphoria, which ended its second season earlier this year. She plays Gia, the younger sister of the character played by Zendaya. Reid will also appear in HBO’s upcoming live-action adaptation of The last of us. She wants to play Rileya close friend of Ellie (Bella Ramsey).
Michael Chaves who helped The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do Itwill instruct The nun sequel written by Akela Cooper, with current revisions by Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing. James Wan and Peter Safran will produce through their Atomic Monster and The Safran Company production banners. Production on The Nun 2 begins next month, and Warner Bros. has already given the sequel one 8 September 2023 release date.
