Nineteen-year-old Storm Reid is proving that she is truly a talented force in #younghollywood. Recently, it was announced that the teen has landed the lead in the upcoming scary sequel to The Nun, The Nun 2.
If you are not familiar with The Nun, keep reading:
When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together, they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
This truly scary movie if we’ve ever seen one. It is no wonder because The Nun is a part of The Conjuring universe. According to Deadline, The Conjuring universe brought in $1.57 billion at the global box office. The Nun alone is the highest grossing film in the series, earning more than $365 million worldwide. Of course, fans, studio heads, and box offices worldwide would want the ghost nun back on the big screen.
So, just what can fans expect from the upcoming movie? Well, the plot for The Nun 2 is currently being kept under wraps, but there are rumors swirling around the film that it will take place in 1950s France.
In terms of Storm’s role in the feature film, well that’s being kept under wraps too.
Even though, there are still many “unknowns” about the upcoming film, there’s a lot that we do know. For example, Luke Cage’s Akela Cooper penned the sreenplay for the project and Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing are in the process of adapting Cooper’s work for the big screen.
Michael Chaves, who most recently directed The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, is at the helm as director for The Nun 2. The Nun 2 is slated to be produced by Jame Wan’s Atomic Monster and Peter Safran’s The Safran Company.
If you remember, Storm got her start in the 2018 box office hit, A Wrinkle in Time. Currently, she has a starring role opposite another BCKOnline favorite, Zendaya, in HBO‘s Euphoria.
Other prominent credits on Storm’s resume include: Don’t Let Go, The Invisible Man, The Suicide Squad, and One Way. In addition to The Nun 2, Storm has a few more upcoming movies that are slated to debut. Those include: Searching 2 and Killing Winston Jones, in addition to, HBO‘s upcoming series The Last of Us.
Storm is currently in school at USC on top of all that she has going on.
The Nun 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on September 8, 2023.
