The Conjuring sets Annabelle prequel as well as a sequel

The Conjuring prequel Annabelle is now in production along with The Conjuring 2

annabelleJames Wan’s The Conjuring is now getting a spin-off prequel called Annabelle, as well as the previously-reported The Conjuring 2.

In case you’ve forgotten, Annabelle was the incredibly creepy doll that the Warrens kept locked in their room of devilish objects in The Conjuring. SchmoesKnow is reporting that John R Leonetti, the director of photography for The Conjuring, will be directing this prequel.

No director has yet been announced for The Conjuring 2, with James Wan taking a break from horror for the foreseeable future, but the Hayes brothers are returning to write the script.

The Conjuring is available on 9 December and you can pre-order it on Blu-ray for £13 at
