The actress will co-star alongside Ward Horton in the high-grossing horror flick.
New Line is moving forward with a spinoff of The Conjuring, as Annabelle Wallis (Peaky Blinders) and Ward Horton are set to star in the low-budget horror movie Annabelle, TheWrap has learned.
John Leonetti, who served as the cinematographer on The Conjuring, is directing from a script by Gary Dauberman. Peter Safran is producing, while The Conjuring director James Wan is among the executive producers.
The Conjuring starred Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who are called upon to help a Rhode Island family that is being terrorised by a haunted house. The Warrens have a room in their own house full of creepy collectibles and possessed possessions, and among them was a demonic doll named Annabelle (pic).
