With her with badly applied make up and demonically dead eyed vacant stare , she’s back! No it’s not Amanda Holden but the evil doll that is Annabelle!
Principal photography has begun on New Line Cinema’s “Annabelle 2,” in Los Angeles with David F. Sandberg (upcoming “Lights Out”) helming the follow up to 2014’s hugely successful “Annabelle,” which scared up nearly $257 million at the worldwide box office during its run in cinemas. The new film is once again being produced by Peter Safran and James Wan, who also partnered so effectively on “The Conjuring” movies and is written by Gary Dauberman, who also wrote “Annabelle.”
The sequel is set several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
The film stars Stephanie Sigman (“Spectre”), Talitha Bateman (“The 5th Wave”), Lulu Wilson (upcoming “Ouija 2,” “Deliver Us from Evil”), Philippa Anne Coulthard (“After the Dark”), Grace Fulton (“Badland”), Lou Lou Safran (“The Choice”), Samara Lee (“Fox Catcher,” “The Last Witch Hunter”), Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia (TV’s “Without a Trace”) and Miranda Otto (Showtime’s “Homeland,” “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy).
Collaborating with Sandberg behind-the-scenes from his “Lights Out” team are production designer Jennifer Spence and editor Michel Aller, joined by director of photography Maxime Alexandre (“The Other Side of the Door”) and costume designer Leah Butler (“Paranormal Activity 3 & 4”).
David F Sandberg’s ‘Lights Out’is out in the Summer and is very creepy so the sequel is in safe hands.
