Taissa Farmiga to Return for 'The Nun 2'.

Taissa Farmiga is returning to star in "The Nun 2" for New Line Cinema and will reprise her role as Sister Irene in the horror franchise that’s part of "The Conjuring" universe of films

Farmiga, who starred in the initial movie, will reprise her role as Sister Irene and joins Euphoria actress Storm Reid in the production, which will begin shooting later in October.

Michael Chaves will direct The Nun 2 following The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the seventh and most recent entry in The Conjuring franchise which opened to $24.1M at No. 1 at the box office last year and pushed the franchise to over $2 billion worldwide, making it the top-grossing horror series on the big screen.

The first "The Nun" film was directed by Corin Hardy and is a prequel to "The Conjuring 2". It explored the origins of the terrifying nun figure introduced, with Farmiga playing a young nun on the verge of performing her final vows and sent to Romania to investigate the death of a young nun and the malevolent force behind another demonic nun.

The film was a spinoff of 2016's "The Conjuring 2", which starred Farmiga's older sister Vera, who has fronted three "Conjuring" films, turning the horror franchise into a bit of a family affair.
