The third movie in the “Annabelle” franchise has been titled “Annabelle Comes Home,” New Line Cinema announced Friday.
The horror film will hit theaters on June 28 of this year. Gary Dauberman — who will be making his directorial debut — wrote the screenplay and co-wrote the story with horror guru James Wan. Peter Safran and Wan are producing.
The film stars Mckenna Grace, Madison Iseman, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. The latter two are reprising their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren from the “Conjuring” franchise.
“Annabelle Comes Home” will follow Ed and Lorraine Warren, who hope to end further damage the haunted doll has created by moving her back to their artifact room in their own home. However, doll unlocks the evil spirits in the house, and she sets her sights on a new target: the Warren’s 10-year-old daughter.
This will be the sixth installment in the “Conjuring” franchise, which also include “The Conjuring,” “The Conjuring 2,” “Annabelle,” “Annabelle: Creation” and “The Nun.” Together, all the films have earned more than $500 million at the domestic box office.
The studio is also in active development on “The Conjuring 3” and “The Crooked Man,” the latter of which is also drawn on a character appearing in “The Conjuring 2.”
