The Annabelle franchise will come full circle with its third film. The Conjuring actors Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will indeed be reprising their roles as the Warrens in the upcoming film.
Although their characters will serve in a supporting role. Judy Warren, Ed and Lorraine’s daughter, will serve as the film’s primary focus.
The film takes place after the paranormal investigating couple have brought home the haunted doll and placed it in their artifacts room where, they assume, its evil can be contained. Instead, the powerful conduit awakens other items in the collection, and soon the rooms’ collective energy begins to attack an unsuspecting Judy.
Mckenna Grace, who recently appeared as young Theo in Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, will star as Judy alongside Madison Iseman.
The film will serve as the directing debut of Gary Dauberman (The Nun, IT) who also wrote the script. James Wan, who created the Conjuring universe after meeting and gaining permission from Lorraine Warren, returns as producer for Atomic Monster with Peter Safran from The Safran Company also producing.
The Untitled Annabelle Project begins filming this week with a July 3, 2019 release date.
