‘The Conjuring’ Spinoff ‘Annabelle’ Gets an October Release Date

The Conjuring Annabelle
Warner Bros.

One of the spookiest parts of James Wan‘s exceptionally spooky horror flick ‘The Conjuring‘ was the terrifying doll named Annabelle, who has gotten her very own spinoff movie. And today comes word that the officially-titled ‘Annabelle‘ will hit theaters in October.

According to Variety, the ‘Conjuring’ spinoff about the former film’s creepy little doll has indeed officially been titled ‘Annabelle,’ and she’ll be scaring her way into theaters on October 3, competing against David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl.’

Annabelle the doll was featured in ‘The Conjuring’ and was based on a real-life case handled by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, played in the film by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. The real Annabelle was actually a more friendly-looking Raggedy Ann doll, but director James Wan smartly made her more terrifying for his film.

‘Annabelle’ is produced by Wan and directed by ‘The Conjuring’ cinematographer John Leonetti, from a script by Gary Dauberman, who also penned the upcoming thriller ‘Crawlspace.’ The spinoff stars Annabelle Wallis (who appears in Sacha Baron Cohen‘s upcoming spy comedy ‘Grimsby‘), Ward Horton, and Alfre Woodard, and will presumably be more of a prequel story, given that Annabelle the doll is kept safely in the Warren’s museum of artifacts after they’ve completed their investigation into her case.
