February 26th, 2014

Warner Bros. are set to release 'The Conjuring 2' in the US on October 23, 2015.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will return in the sequel to 2013's American supernatural horror after they played paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren respectively in the original, reports Variety.com.

Director James Wan helmed the first movie and while a filmmaker for the second is yet to be confirmed, Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes who penned 'The Conjuring' will work on the follow-up.

New Line Chief Executive, Toby Emmerich, previously revealed 'The Conjuring 2' will avoid ''blood, gore and death'' often associated with horror flicks.

He said: '''The Conjuring' is incredibly effective and scary without the use of blood, gore and death.

''It's a horror film that emphasizes atmosphere and suspense in the tradition of classics like 'Psycho' or 'The Others.'''

'The Conjuring' was well received by film critics and proved a box-office success grossing over $318 million worldwide.

New Line are currently working on 'Annabelle', which is a spin-off based on the possessed doll which was introduced in 'The Conjuring'.
