THE CONJURING Getting Annabelle Spin-Off Film
For those of you who enjoyed James Wan's horror film The Conjuring, you'll be happy to hear that not only will we see a sequel, but apparently Warner Bros. and New Line are planning a spin-off film based on the creepy Annabelle doll from the beginning of the movie.
The news comes from Schmoes Know, who also says the Director of Photography from The Conjuring, John R. Leonetti, will be directing the film, and that it will start shooting in the Spring of 2014. The story of Annabelle was a really creepy opening for the movie, and it will be fun to see a full movie based on the doll. I imagine it will show the doll's origin story, but we'll see.
As for the separate Conjuring sequel that is currently being written by Chad and Carey Hayes, the studio is hoping to get Wan back on board to direct that. There's no official information on what the sequel will entail, but here's one of the story possibilities that has leaked online.
"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.”
