Some interesting news is being reported that James Wan’s The Conjuring is getting a spinoff titled Annabell, and it will be about exactly that—the Annabelle doll that had one hell of a terrifying presence in the film. One thing I often hear when fans talk about Wan’s haunter is how damn creepy that doll was. And she’s hardly in the film at all! This tells me that Warner Bros. is really onto something here. According to Schmoes Know, The Conjuring’s Director of Photography John R. Leonetti will take the helm, and sources say the movie will begin filming in Spring of 2014.
And for those of you who are curious about the movement on the sequel to The Conjuring, the site says that the Hayes brothers (writers of the original) are hard at work on the second chapter. So we’ve got a spinoff and a sequel headed our way; it’s amazing what a successful money-making film like The Conjuring can do as far as getting similar projects off the ground. Warner Bros. apparently is hoping to get James Wan back behind the camera of the sequel, but I wouldn’t get too excited about that one, folks. Wan has already stated that he’s done with horror for the time being, and he’s plenty busy with other projects like Fast and Furious 7. That’s all for now, what say you? Do you think Annabelle is a good idea for a film?
