Ed and Lorraine Warren return in the third ‘Conjuring’ film, which is based on a real-life trial.
Ed and Lorraine Warren return in Warner’s third Conjuring film, which released its first trailer on Thursday.Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga star in the latest entry in the hit horror franchise, with Michael Chaves (who previously helmed the Conjuring spinoff The Curse of La Llorona) directing.

The story is loosely based on the trial of Arne Cheyenne, 19, who was convicted of stabbing to death his landlord in 1981 and attempted to blame demonic possession for his actions. Johnson said the 11-year-old brother of his fiancée had been possessed months earlier, that they had enlisted the help of real-life self-proclaimed demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, and then the demon fled from the boy’s body into Johnson’s.

The film’s story is by James Wan and David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick with a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick. Wan directed the first two Conjuring films, then handed duties over to Chaves for the third film, citing a scheduling conflict.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It releases June 4 in theaters and on HBO Max.
