If you’ve enjoyed James Wan’s horror film The Conjuring, then you’ll be more than happy to hear that Warner Bros. and New Line are planning a spin-off film that focuses solely on the creepy Annabelle doll that appeared in the opening sequence of the movie.
The news comes from Schmoes Know, and though nothing is confirmed yet, but the project seems to exist.
It has also been reported that the veteran cinematographer from The Conjuring, John R. Leonetti, will be the Director of the film which will start shooting in the Spring of 2014. However, the screenwriter hasn’t been revealed yet.
While Hayes brothers (Chad and Carey) are already working on The Conjuring 2, the studio is hoping to get Wan back behind the camera for the sequel, but it’s not sure whether his busy schedule will let him join them or not. Further the source says that if Warner Bros. can’t get him back on board, they can still move on without him.
However, I really enjoyed the first movie and would love to see him coming back to direct this one, as well.
There’s no official information on the story plot of the sequel however, one of the possible story that leaked online would be something like this:
“The case file they’re looking at occurs in the late ’70s and centers on two sisters in Enfield, England, who were allegedly possessed. Warren said she personally saw them levitate and even saw one of the sister dematerialize in front of her only to be found 20 minutes later stuffed into an over sized fuse box, contorted in such an unnatural way that they couldn’t have replicated it if they tried. She also said that the demon spoke directly to her husband on many occasions. Warren cited this case as one of the most terrifying experiences of her career.”
Do you think the project is intended for the cinema or it’s something as straight-to-DVD? Sound off with your comments below.
