Fresh from the success of The Conjuring 2 and Lights Out in 2016, New Line Cinema is gearing up for its next would-be blockbuster this year in the form of Annabelle 2.
That’s right, the creepy evil doll from James Wan’s The Conjuring is back to scare us out of our wits one more time. And we have a brand new photo to kick-start that fear, giving you a quick look at what to expect from this follow-up. Check it out below.
If that didn’t give you the chills, then maybe this announcement trailer will.
The film goes all the way back to the creation of the doll, and tells the story of a dollmaker and his wife who welcome a nun and a group of children into their home after their orphanage got shut down. Things start to take a turn for the worse when they soon become target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation.
Lights Out director David F. Sandberg helms the sequel from a script written by Gary Dauberman, the same guy who wrote the first Annabelle movie as well as the upcoming It remake. Peter Safran and master of modern horror James Wan are set to produce the pic.
Stephanie Sigman (Spectre) plays the character of the nun, with Miranda Otto, Anthony LaPaglia, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson, Philippa Anne Coulthard, Lou Lou Safran, Samara Lee, and Tayler Buck filling the rest of the casting folder.
Annabelle 2 will scare its way to US theaters on August 11, 2017.
