New Line is moving forward with a spinoff of The Conjuring, as Annabelle Wallis (pictured below; X-Men: First Class, Peaky Blinders) and Ward Horton (The Wolf of Wall Street) are set to star in the low-budget horror movie Annabelle, according to TheWrap.
John Leonetti, who served as the cinematographer on The Conjuring, is directing from a script by Gary Dauberman. Peter Safran is producing, while The Conjuring director James Wan is among the executive producers.
The Conjuring starred Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who are called upon to help a Rhode Island family that is being terrorized by a haunted house. The Warrens have a room in their own house full of creepy collectibles and possessed possessions, and among them was a demonic doll named Annabelle.
