When you think of The Conjuring, James Wan's horror hit from last summer, most people probably think of the Annabelle doll, a terrifying doll who haunts a pair of young women. The funny thing is that the film wasn't really focused on Annabelle; she was just kind of an introduction into the weird lives of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. But Annabelle has proven herself to be beloved - and now she is getting her own movie.
Details on the script are under wraps for now, but the two lead actors have just been cast: Annabelle Wallis (The Tudors) and Ward Horton (Days of Our Lives, The Wolf of Wall Street). John Leonetti, who was the cinematographer on The Conjuring will direct Annabelle based off a script from Gary Dauberman (Bloodmonkey, Swamp Devil). Shooting is scheduled to begin in Los Angeles at the end of the month.
