Third Annabelle film on the cards
The film will be writen and directed by Gary Dauberman
The raggedy doll will be back to haunt people as the third part of Annabelle is on the cards.
New Line is expanding the profitable Conjuring universe with a third Annabelle movie that will open on July 3, 2019.
Gary Dauberman, who has written the scripts for two demon doll movies, will make his directorial debut on the untitled Annabelle project, for which he will also be writing the script.
James Wan's Atomic Monster and the Peter Safran Company will produce the project. The four movies in the Conjuring universe -- which includes the two Annabelle titles -- have generated more than $1.1 billion worldwide. The fifth Conjuring universe film The Nun will open on September 7.
Dauberman also wrote the script for The Nun with Wan and is one of the three writers with screenplay credits on horror blockbuster It and it's sequel It: Chapter 2.
The porcelain doll was a key component of The Conjuring, inspired by a story told by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Warrens are portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in the franchise.
