The Warrens are going to be facing the evil forces once again this summer with the new entry of The Conjuging saga. This time, they will follow the case of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, also known as the “Devil Made Me Do It” case, a real-life story where claiming to be under demonic possession a young man committed the murder of his landlord.

The official movie plot shared by Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema reads:

The Devil Made Me Do It reveals a chilling story of terror, murder, and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. One of the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they’d ever seen before, to mark the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.

As happened in the other entries of the franchise, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) has been produced by James Wan, the creator of the saga, via his banner Atomic Monster Productions, and Peter Safran of The Safran Company. It is based on a story conceived by James Wan and the writer of the screenplay David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, also the writer of Orphan (2009), Red Riding Hood (2011), The Conjuring 2 (2016), and Aquaman (2018).

The chosen one to direct the film was Michael Chaves, whose debut feature film was The Curse of la Llorona (2019), considered the sixth installment in The Conjuring Universe.

Besides Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson reprising once again their roles of Lorraine and Ed Warren, Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, Julian Hilliard, Charlene Amoia, Paul Wilson, John Noble, Sterling Jerins, Shannon Kook, Steve Coulter, Ronnie Gene Blevins, and Ingrid Bisu complete the main cast.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021) entered production on June 3, 2019, with filming taking place in Atlanta, Georgia. Filming had wrapped after 80 days. It is scheduled to be released in the United States on June 4, 2021. As part of its plans for all of its 2021 films, Warner Bros. will also stream the movie simultaneously on the HBO Max service for a period of one month, after which the film will be removed from the service until the normal home media release schedule period.
