The screenplay was written by Gary Dauberman, who also penned the first movie and worked on the scripts for the upcoming movie adaptation of Stephen King’s IT and another Conjuring spinoff, next year’s The Nun. Starring in the movie is Miranda Otto, Anthony LaPaglia, Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson, Philippa Coulthard, Lou Lou Safran, Samara Lee, and Tayler Buck.
