James Wan returning for The Conjuring 2


I guess he 'wan'ted to come back

In case you missed the news The Conjuring 2 was delayed until 2016 instead of having a 2015 release date. That was kind of weird because Annabelle did really well at the box office so you'd think they'd want more out there so they can make more money. It is no longer weird because it turns out they did it so that director James Wan could return for the sequel. 

Actually it still is weird, but for different reasons. Wan had stated that Conjuring and Insidious 2 were his last horror films ever so unless they're drastically changing the genre of The Conjuring 2 that seems to be have been a lie. I wonder how big a pile of money they drove up to his door. It also may mean he is not going to return to Fast and Furious after the seventh film. All very odd. Maybe he's coming back for more Saw?
