With Warner Bros. and New Line’s The Conjuring being one of the most successful horror movies of all time, it’s no surprise that a sequel was quickly put into development.
The big surprise is that the studios are planning three micro-budgeted spinoffs based on the Warren Case Files, an inside source tells Bloody Disgusting exclusively.
The first, which is currently untitled, will be based on the now infamous “Annabelle Doll”.
Recently we broke the news on John R. Leonetti‘s and John Darko‘s series “Nowheresville” (read more), which is now in active development – but we have also confirmed that Leonetti will share directorial duties with newcomer John Darko, our source reveals.
As previously mentioned, New Line will be adopting the micro-budget approach on these projects. The tentatively titled The Annabelle Story is known to be a prequel to the events in the James Wan-directed The Conjuring. And we hear that production may start as early as December with John R. Leonetti at the helm.
Leonetti has been working along side James Wan (cinematographer) since Dead Silence, and now seeing Wan take on a different genre (Fast and Furious 7) we are excited to see John take over where James has left off.
