The film also stars Simon McBurney (“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”), Franka Potente (“Bourne Identity”), Madison Wolfe (“Trumbo”), Maria Doyle Kennedy (“The Commitments”), David Thewlis (“Naked”), and more. “The Conjuring 2” is based on the real-life exploits of Lorraine and Ed Warren, whose involvement in the 1976 Amityville Horror case inspired the film of the same name.
