The Conjuring 2 has almost finished production, with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga completing their scenes in London. Director James Wan shared this shot of the location in England...
Returning star Patrick Wilson (who plays real life psychic investigator Ed Warren) spoke to EW about filming The Conjuring 2, and his admiration for director James Wan:
"James has pushed himself and pushed himself. A month ago we shot this one scene, and I said to him, ‘Four movies with you, man, and this was the creepiest scene I’ve ever done.’ It was so freaky and bizarre and strange — just get ready!”
Yup, even creepier than THIS classic Patrick Wilson scene...
Wilson is obviously impressed with Wan's reinvention with every film, constantly coming up with new ways to freak out the audience:
“Without giving anything away, he wouldn’t settle for the film ending with me giving an exorcism and then the witch goes away. We can’t do that again, so we don’t … I love that they pushed the skepticism of it, I love that they pushed the Warrens’ involvement, and it’s awesome.
And we stole from a couple real situations where the Warrens were confronted by skeptics, because James is real conscious of that. He knows that fans who want to believe will see the movies, but he knows there are a lot of skeptics out there, so why not show that? We probably had more fun shooting it than the first one. I love it; it was fantastic.”
