A report by Schmoes Know states that apparently there are plans in place for a prequel to James Wan’s The Conjuring, and it will be based around the creepy Annabelle doll from the film.
The prequel is expected to begin filming in Spring 2014, with The Conjuring’s director of photography John R. Leonetti directing. That is the only details available right now, but should this turn out to be true, it will make for a superb horror film. The Annabelle doll in The Conjuring was one of the creepiest ever shown in a horror film, and a new film focusing on her sinister curse would be splendid.
While on the subject of The Conjuring, it has also been reported that Warner Brothers and New Line are hoping James Wan will return to horror to direct the sequel. However, with Fast & Furious 7 on the cards, it is doubtful Wan’s schedule will allow it, but one can live in hope.
Continuing with The Conjuring, here is a reminder of the possible plot details for the sequel, which we posted a few months back:
Now, thanks to Aint It Cool News, some possible details on The Conjuring 2 have been revealed:
Thanks to the teasing final moments in The Conjuring, fans were expecting the sequel to focus on probably the most famous of The Warrens case file, the story of Amityville. However, with countless films and documentaries already made based on this terrifying story, it would make sense that The Conjuring 2 brings a new story to the table.
AICN reported that a tipster recently attended an intimate gathering at Lorraine Warrens home, and she spoke of how The Conjuring doubled box office predictions, and that writers Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes were already working on the script.
The case file they’re looking at occurs in the late ’70s and centers on two sisters in Enfield, England, who were allegedly possessed. Warren said she personally saw them levitate and even saw one of the sister dematerialize in front of her only to be found 20 minutes later stuffed into an oversized fuse box, contorted in such an unnatural way that they couldn’t have replicated it if they tried. She also said that the demon spoke directly to her husband on many occasions. Warren cited this case as one of the most terrifying experiences of her career.
Doing a little bit of research on it, this is widely considered a youngsters-playing-pranks case by most paranormal investigators.
