News ‘The Crooked Man’ Spinoff Officially Announced; Mike Van Waes to Write Published 1 year ago on June 14, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet We first heard about the possibility of a Crooked Man spinoff back in late May, when Producer Peter Safran discussed his thoughts on the idea in an interview with Arrow in the Head. As you know, The Crooked Man made an appearance in James Wan’s The Conjuring 2, who was portrayed by Javier Botet in the film as a creepy secondary antagonist. The character is based on an English nursery rhyme. THR reports today that the spinoff has officially been confirmed, and Mike Van Waes has been hired to pen the script for New Line, from a story by James Wan. Producer Peter Safran recently had this to say about the spinoff: “I think there’s something fascinating in the Crooked Man. Maybe tonally he’s not as grounded as the Conjuring itself is and maybe that’s why some people felt it wasn’t what they were looking for in the Conjuring but I suspect a movie with him would be really really cool.” Safran continued, “I love the character, just things like the transformation from the dog into the Crooked Man and the way he walked. It’s one of those characters when I see his fingers coming out when Ed Warren has kind of blinded by the steam and is coming into the living room where the TV is, there’s a thing where his fingers come around a door and every time I see that I just love what that character can be.” Wan and Peter Safran are producing The Crooked Man spinoff. Annabelle: Creation is the next film to be released in the The Conjuring Universe, which is due in theaters August 11, followed by The Nun on Friday, July 13, 2018.
