Taissa Farmiga Cast In Title Role For The Nun
Farmiga, of course, is best known for her multiple appearances on American Horror Story, the horror anthology series that saw her play a lead role in the first two seasons and a guest role on the last. However, she has also acted in several films, the most recent of which is We Have Always Lived in the Castle.
As a spin-off of The Conjuring franchise, the movie will revolve around the titular apparition, which vexed paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren in the last film. By remarkable coincidence, the actress who played Warren, Bates Motel‘s Vera Farmiga, happens to be the older sister of the newly-cast Taissa.
Comingsoon.net, the source of this story, shares the following information about the growing horror franchise:
The Nun is the second spinoff to come from The Conjuring series, following in the footsteps of Annabelle, which will see its prequel film Annabelle: Creation hit theaters August 11, 2017. What makes this spinoff perhaps so remarkable is that The Nun character was a late addition to last year’s The Conjuring 2, but was quickly a favorite by horror fans and was announced to have her own feature film in development just one week after The Conjuring 2 opened.
