Conjuring spin-off The Nun’s release date has been pushed back

The Conjuring spin-off The Nun has had its release date delayed.

The movie, based on a character seen in the second The Conjuring movie, follows a priest who is sent to Rome to investigate the death of a nun.

The Nun went into production in July 2016 and was originally lined up for a July 13 release date this year.

However, Deadline reports the movie will now be released on September 7.

The Nun will be the second spinoff from the Conjuring cinematic universe (which was always planned), following 2014’s Annabelle, which has spawned a sequel of its own in Annabelle: Creation.

The Nun stars Demian Bichir as the priest in question and American Horror Story‘s Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene.

Interestingly, despite the demon nun character being introduced in The Conjuring 2, she was only added to that movie three months before it opened in cinemas, thanks to last-minute reshoots.

Well, there’s The Conjuring 3 on the way, as well as another spin-off in the form of the second film’s Crooked Man.

Thanks to a competition run by the Annabelle team, there could also be an Annabelle spin-off with this creepy nurse character.

The Nun is directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow) and written by Annabelle and IT writer Gary Dauberman and The Conjuring creator James Wan.

The Nun will be in UK and US cinemas on September 7.
