Lord of the Rings' Miranda Otto joins Annabelle 2; plot details announced

Annabelle 2 Miranda Otto David F Sandberg

ANNABELLE 2 was in the news recently when director David F. Sandberg (LIGHTS OUT) said that he aims to make ANNABELLE 2 the "GODFATHER II of creepy doll movies," but now it's time to put his money where his mouth is. The film now has its first cast member and a plot synopsis, so there's no turning this train around.

Joining the ANNABELLE team is Miranda Otto, perhaps best known for her role as Éowyn in the LORD OF THE RINGS franchise. She also appeared in Steven Spielberg's WAR OF THE WORLDS, WHAT LIES BENEATH, and is set to star in the upcoming series 24: Legacy.

Here's the plot:

ANNABELLE 2 tells of a dollmaker and his wife who, 20 years after the tragic death of their little girl, welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home. Soon, however, the nun and the girls become the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.

Otto will portray the dollmaker's wife, "a disfigured recluse."

The film will shoot in L.A. this July.
