Remember Annabelle, the creepy-looking haunted doll from the horror film “The Conjuring”? Well, be prepared because the doll will be returning to the big screen soon! Warner Bros and New Line have announced that the film is set to be released worldwide on October 3 2014.
Titled “Annabelle’, the spin-off of “The Conjuring” is based on the real-life Raggedy Ann doll that has been haunting its previous owners before the Warrens. Oh, you remember the one, the one that the paranormal investigators took possession of as part of their demonic objects collection.
Directed by John R. Leonetti, the film is written by Gary Dauberman and produced by Peter Safran and “The Conjuring” director James Wan. John R. Leonetti was previously the cinematographer for “The Conjuring” as well. It is reported the film is neither a prequel nor sequel and it only centres on Annabelle the haunted doll.
The stars who portrayed Ed and Lorraine Warren will not be returning to the screen as Annabelle Wallis and Ward Horton have been cast as the leads of the film. Alfre Woodard has been cast for the film as well but her role is not known yet.
The film will open against the mystery thriller film “Gone Girl” (starring Ben Affleck) and Warner’s refugee drama “The Good Lie”. Are you ready to get spooked all over again? Because this is definitely not for the weak hearted!
