Production began for The Conjuring 2 this week, a sequel to the 2013 box-office smash which raked in $318 million worldwide.

The horror movies that are scripted by two Christian brothers, Chad and Carey Hayes, are about real life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

New Line Cinema tweeted a photo Monday of what looks to be cast members gathered around a priest, with a description that read, "#TheConjuring filming began bright and early this morning with a priest blessing the set!" 

While the movies cover the dark subject matter of demonic possession and oppression, The Conjuring included positive and overt Christian content in opposition to the darkness.

James Wan directed the seventh installment of the Fast and Furious franchisee Furious 7 in between the two Conjuring movies and is already lined up to direct Aquaman, the superhero movie connected to Zack Snyder's Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
