Annabelle Wallis, whose credits include The Loudest Voice, The Mummy, and Peaky Blinders), will star in the new James Wan horror film, according to Variety. Wallis previously worked with Wan on The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle.
The film is set to begin production in Los Angeles this fall. 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. Wan has a number of projects on the way, including the latest Conjuring film which is currently in production and will hit theaters on September 11, 2020. This past May, Wan joined Lindsey Beer (Chaos Walking, Sierra Burgess is a Loser) to executive produce The Magic Order, a new series for Netflix from Mark Millar.
Wan is expected to begin production on Aquaman 2 after the untitled horror film wraps.
