With San Diego Comic-Con 2018 currently underway, new details about upcoming films have started pouring in. New Line Cinema’s ScareDiego panel, led by producer and director, James Wan, and hosted by Grae Drake offered new exciting new details about the next untitled series film, Annabelle 3. The third installment is going to be a treat for horror film fans as the makers promise the upcoming film to be the scariest installment yet.
Writer Gary Dauberman, who wrote the previous two Annabelle movie and also co-wrote The Nun, is all set to make Annabelle 3 as his directorial debut. James Wan will only serve as a producer.
The creepy killer doll was first introduced in The Conjuring. She returned back for her own prequel in 2014’s Annabelle and then again in 2017’s Annabelle Creation. The third Annabelle movie will be a sequel to the first spin-off movie. The film’s story will unfold shortly after the events of the first Conjuring.
Annabelle 3 will focus on what the killer doll gets up to after paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren lock it up in their artifact room where she can’t wreak havoc.
“I’m still finalizing the script, but it really picks up with the Warrens bringing Annabelle to the place where it can really no longer wreak havoc, which is their artifact room,” Dauberman said, reported Entertainment Weekly. “But, of course, it turns out she can also wreak havoc there. And she really awakens the evil within that room and they target the Warrens’ 10-year-old daughter, Judy. So, that’s the set-up.”
Wan further explained that Annabelle 3 will be something like a haunted Night at the Museum, wherein Annabelle will bring other artifacts in Warren’s museum to life.
“Annabelle basically activates all the other haunted artifacts in that room,” Wan said. “So, it’s basically A Night at the Museum, with Annabelle!”
Annabelle 3 is currently scheduled to debut in theaters on July 3, 2019.
