Bloody Disgusting tipster Mike Magnano loves to dig for goodies hiding on social media, and came across shots of Talitha Bateman on the set of Annabelle 2, which is currently lensing in Los Angeles. In the shots, we see Bateman pouting in a room in which she’s surrounded by dolls.
Lights Out‘s David F. Sandberg is helming the follow up to 2014’s hugely successful Annabelle, which scared up nearly $257 million at the worldwide box office during its run in theaters.
In Annabelle 2, “Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.”
The full cast includes Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), Talitha Bateman (The 5th Wave), Lulu Wilson (upcoming Ouija 2, Deliver Us from Evil), Philippa Anne Coulthard (After the Dark), Grace Fulton (Badland), Lou Lou Safran (The Choice), Samara Lee (Fox Catcher, The Last Witch Hunter), Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia (TV’s Without a Trace) and Miranda Otto (Showtime’s Homeland, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy).
Sandberg directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman, who also wrote Annabelle.
Annabelle 2 is slated for release on May 19, 2017.
