Annabelle Wallis, whose credits include The Loudest VoiceThe Mummy, and Peaky Blinders), will star. Wallis previously worked with Wan on The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle.

The movie is based on a story by Wan and Ingrid Bisu, and will be produced by Wan and Michael Clear through Atomic Monster. It will be financed by Starlight Media and Midas Innovation, and distributed by New Line.

Though we have no details on the story yet, it is said to be a slice of horror Wan hasn’t yet explored.

James Wan is known for the Saw franchise as well as the films in the Insidious and Conjuring franchises. He directed Aquaman for Warner Bros., and the film passed $1 billion at the box office.
