According to Slash Film, Wan had a priest on the production to bless their filming for fear that his horror film sequel gets troubled by real evil supernaturals.

Since Wan's film involves demons, possession, and exorcism, it is a safe move to have someone to bless the set. According to Cinema Blend, any scary film that takes in children could be distressing to some viewers. While many people delight in the elements of childhood fears in horror films, such as creatures in the closet and under the bed, it is calming to know that they were not existent.

Aside from producing Wan's "The Conjuring" in 2013, Cowan is also known for producing Jon Avnet's action crime film "Righteous Kill," Breck Eisener's horror mystery thriller film "The Crazies," and Brad Peyton's action thriller film "San Andreas." Along with Wan's "The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist," he is set to produce Kody Zimmermann's horror film "The Hollow Season" and Ben Falcone's comedy "The Boss."

Meanwhile, Wan is known for directing "The Conjuring," the horror mystery film "Saw," "Insidious," "Insidious: Chapter 2," and the action car-racing film "Furious 7." Aside from "The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist," Wan is to touch the comic-book film and split his time to helm the upcoming DC Comics film "Aquaman," starring "Conan the Barbarian" actor Jason Momoa.

"The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist" will serve as a sequel to Wan's "The Conjuring." It centers on the case of two young teenage girls who were involved in supernatural disturbances.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmgia will reprise their roles as Ed Warren and Lorraine Warren, respectively. Along with them, the film stars Frances O'Connor, Shannon Kook, Adrien Ryans, and Jenniefer Collins. With Wan directing the film, Carey Hayes, Chad Hayes, and David Johnson are on board to pen the script.

Since the film is still in its early stage of development, exact details on the plot, characters, and cast are yet to be revealed.

Directed by Wan, "The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist" is slated to premiere in theaters in the United States on June 10, 2016.
