Warner Bros. released a behind-the-scenes first look at ‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It‘. It’s a 32 minute mini-doc called ‘Faith & Fear: The Conjuring Universe Behind The Scenes‘.
In a Warner Bros. statement for the release of the video, the company said “Before ‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It‘ began filming, a bishop from the Order of Exorcists was called to bless the studio, cast and crew. This is the story of ‘The Conjuring‘, and how the films and their real life inspirations connect behind-the-scenes.”
Returning to star in “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” is Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as the famous paranormal couple Ed and Lorraine Warren. This time the story revolves around the real-life trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, also know as “Devil Made Me Do It” case, in which the defense “sought to prove innocence based upon the defendant’s claim of demonic possession and denial of personal responsibility for the crime“. Actor, Patrick Wilson said “You’re in for a much different ride than you’ve been on in other Conjuring films.”
“I really wanted The Conjuring 3 to get away from the whole haunted house set-up of the first two Conjuring films”– James Wan
