In November we reported that a Conjuring spin-off was being rumored. Last years horror hit was directed by James Wan and became a huge hit so a spin-off or sequel was inevitable. . Today, The Wrap confirms that a new film is going to begin production later this month called Annabelle. Yes, they’re giving us the story of that creepy-ass doll from the beginning of The Conjuring.
The film will star Annabelle Wallis (how’s that for a coincidence?) and Ward Horton.
The Annabelle doll was seen at the start of The Conjuring as a possessed item terrorizing a group of 20-somethings. Her reign of terror ended when Ed and Lorraine Warren obtained the doll and added them to their collection of supernatural items.
Warner Bros./New Line are still developing a sequel to The Conjuring. It’s unknown if Annabelle will go direct-to-DVD/Blu-ray as originally rumored or if it will get a theatrical run.
