New Line Cinema’s winning streak launching horror franchises dates all the way back to the first A Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984. And it looks like it’s continuing full steam with a second spin-off from its new blockbuster franchise, The Conjuring.

The Warner Bros. division is moving forward with The Nun, a spin-off of its most recent franchise film The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist, hiring up-and-coming horror director Corin Hardy to helm it. It will continue the story of a demon nun, according to Variety, featured in last year’s film that earned $311.3 million globally.

The demon nun came to life in The Conjuring 2 from a painting by Patrick Wilson’s paranormal investigator Ed Warren, and later attacked Vera Farmiga’s Lorraine Warren. The Conjuring 2 deals with the 1977 case of demonic possession of an 11-year-old British girl, played by Madison Wolfe.

Franchise director James Wan may not be helming The Nun, but he’s definitely involved, both in the script process and as a producer. Wan took a somewhat similar approach to the first spin-off of the franchise, Annabelle, which earned $256.9 million in 2014, and was directed by John R. Leonetti, who directed photography work in the original 2013 The Conjuring.
