Third Annabelle film will have the demon doll haunting the Warrens


A few months ago, New Line Cinema made the surprise announcement that the next entry in the "Conjuring Universe", following the September release of THE NUN, will be a third film in the ANNABELLE franchise... It was a surprise because we figured the next movie in this universe would be the THE CONJURING 2 spin-off THE CROOKED MAN, since the script for that one has been in development for over a year.

But the CROOKED MAN movie remains without a release date, while the third ANNABELLE is heading toward a July 3, 2019 release.

ANNABELLE and ANNABELLE: CREATION writer Gary Dauberman will be making his feature directorial debut with the new demon doll film, and during New Line Cinema's horror presentation at the San Diego Comic-Con yesterday Dauberman provided some information on Annabelle's next adventure. The JoBlo Network's own Paul Shirey reports that ANNABELLE 3 (that's not the official title) will center on 

the Warrens bringing Annabelle back to their artifact room, where she targets their 10-year old daughter. 

Producer James Wan mentioned that the doll will be bringing other artifacts in the room to life, like a horror version of NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM.

So if ANNABELLE 3 takes place at the Warren home, does that mean the film is going to star Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine Warren? While I would be surprised if Wilson and Farmiga were to star in the ANNABELLE film, since I figured they'd be kept in the CONJURING films and wouldn't be branching out into the spin-offs, with this story they'd at least have to make a cameo... I am very intrigued.

We'll be keeping a eye on ANNABELLE 3 as it gets closer to production.
