Washington [US], September 26 (ANI): 'Euphoria' star Storm Reid has bagged a lead role in 'The Nun 2'the sequel to the surprise 2018 hit that makes up part of New Line's collection of horror movies known as 'The Conjuring Universe'.
After directing The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the most current instalment in that horror franchise, Michael Chaves will handle 'The Nun 2'. In 2021, that movie debuted at the top of the box office and helped the total worldwide revenue of those films surpass $2 billion, per the reports of The Hollywood Reporter.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, 'The Conjuring 2' prequel spinoff 'Nun' starred Bonnie Aarons as a demonic nun. A priest and a young nun, respectively played by Demian Bichir and Taissa Farmiga, attempted to battle the nun's wicked possessions in this 1952 monastery-set drama.
