EVIL COMES HOME AS PRODUCTION BEGINS ON THE NEXT “ANNABELLE” CHAPTER 

 

BURBANK, CA – October 17, 2018 – Principal photography is underway on the third installment of New Line Cinema’s hugely successful “Annabelle” film series, starring the infamous sinister doll from the “Conjuring” universe.  

 



Screenwriter Gary Dauberman (“The Nun,” “IT” films, “Annabelle” films) helms his first feature in the $1.5 billion “Conjuring” franchise. The new horror film is once again being produced by “Conjuring” universe creator James Wan through his Atomic Monster production company, and by Peter Safran, who has produced all the films, through The Safran Company.

 

Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target—the Warrens’ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.

 

The film stars McKenna Grace (TV’s “The Haunting of Hill House,” “Gifted,” upcoming “Captain Marvel”) as Judy; Madison Iseman (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween”) as her babysitter, Mary Ellen; and Katie Sarife (TV’s “Youth and Consequences” and “Supernatural”) as troubled friend Daniela; with Patrick Wilson (“The Conjuring” and “Insidious” films, upcoming “Aquaman”) and Vera Farmiga (“The Conjuring” films, upcoming “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” TV’s “Bates Motel”) reprising their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren.

 

Dauberman also wrote the screenplay from a story by Wan & Dauberman.  The executive producers are Michael Clear and Michelle Morrissey. Dauberman’s behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Michael Burgess (upcoming “The Curse of La Llorona”), production designer Jennifer Spence (“Annabelle Creation,” “The Nun”), and costume designer Leah Butler (“Annabelle Creation”).

 

From New Line Cinema, the film is set to open in theatres beginning July 3, 2019 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

    DEMONIC POSSESSIONS BEGIN WHEN ANNABELLE COMES HOME  

     

    Retrieved by demonologists Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) from a group of terrified young nurses, the Annabelle doll has been safely secured for a year in her new home amidst the Warrens’ myriad haunted artifacts when New Line Cinema’s “Annabelle Comes Home” begins.  Despite the relative quiet during that time, all the relics are still conduits for malevolent forces that are undoubtedly aware of Annabelle’s presence among them.  

     


     

    The screenplay was penned by “Annabelle” franchise writer Gary Dauberman, who makes his feature directorial debut with “Annabelle Comes Home.”  “It felt like a natural progression and the right time to make that leap, and James and Peter were very supportive,” he notes of producers James Wan and Peter Safran.  Wan and Dauberman co-wrote the story, and the latter says that they knew immediately they wanted to anchor it at the Warren house and continue with the cool, 1970s throwback vibe, while taking a closer look than ever before at the Warren household.

     

    “It’s the early `70s, a little while after the Perron case we followed in ‘The Conjuring.’  The Warrens are starting to deal with a little press surrounding them as people find out what they do for a living, which, unbeknownst to Ed and Lorraine, is weighing heavier on Judy than she’s letting on.”

     

    Judy Warren is their ten-year-old daughter.  And while this, like all the “Annabelle” films, specifically, is primarily fictional and only briefly touches on the event outlined in the real Warren case files, Dauberman felt it would be interesting to experience the paranormal world her parents inhabit from Judy’s point of view.  “What would it be like to be their daughter and see them come home from work, where they deal with these frightening, otherworldly occurrences every day?” he ponders.  “Or to have objects that are essentially souvenirs from all their terrifying investigations just sitting there down the hall?”

     

    Curiosity would certainly get the better of most kids, but Judy has steered clear of that part of the house, appreciating the gravity of her mom and dad’s warnings against venturing beyond the locked door.  Annabelle might be the most recent addition to the eerie collection, but the space hosts hundreds of items, every one of which has been deemed dangerous enough to confine and to receive regular holy blessings from a priest.

     

    James Wan, creator of the “Conjuring” franchise, says, “I think my obsession with creepy dolls led me to the Warrens, and it was stumbling across the story of the real Annabelle that led me to dig deeper into who they were and to learn about this doll that was the centerpiece of their collection.”

     

    Since introducing his film version of Annabelle to the world, Wan admits, “My fascination with the idea that an inanimate object—something that’s supposed to be so innocent and meant as a child’s plaything—could harbor a demonic entity only grew exponentially.  So, with the Annabelle stories and then the Crooked Man in ‘The Conjuring 2,’ I’ve continued to feed that interest.”

    McKENNA GRACE `COMES HOME'

     TO A TERRIFYING NIGHT WITH ANNABELLE

       




     

    Making a big splash recently as the young Carol Danvers in “Captain Marvel,” teen actress McKenna Grace (Netflix’s “The Haunting of Hill House”) now stars as Judy, the daughter of Ed & Lorraine Warren, in New Line Cinema’s supernatural horror-thriller “Annabelle Comes Home.”

    While the film’s focus is Annabelle and the many other sinister artifacts, and the havoc they wreak together, the Warrens are away during that terrifying night, so it’s their daughter, her babysitter and a friend who must do whatever they can to survive.  And though she hasn’t really told anyone up till now, young Judy Warren is beginning to suspect she might be a little more like her parents than they know

    Judy is played by Mckenna Grace, who says, “My character has powers kind of like her mom; she can see visions, and I think she is a little insecure about it, because it’s very frightening, seeing all these images in her head.  Or maybe they’re not just in her head.”

    She is also dealing with being a little ostracized at school as the community is just now getting a sense of what her parents do via their work being written up in the local newspapers.  “She feels a bit like an outcast, because kids at school tease her or don’t want to be her friend.

    Grace herself is very involved at school and, in fact, she says, “I found out I got the role while I was at cheerleading practice and I had to sit out for a minute.  I knew it was going to be challenging because there’s a lot of crying and screaming…basically the whole movie.  But I was so excited!”

    Part of her enthusiasm stemmed from being a huge fan of the genre herself.  “My dad and I like to watch horror movies together on weekends, and I just think that they’re really good and James Wan is a genius,” she states.  “I really like the adrenaline.  Beforehand, you’re like, ‘Oh, this is going to be so scary, I’m so excited but I’m scared.’  And then afterwards you can laugh and think, ‘Wow, that was crazy, I want to watch it again!’”

    As a big fan of the “Conjuring” films in particular, Grace was thrilled to be working with Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, and they were extremely impressed with her.  “She’s a wonderful actress,” the former says.  “Just a fantastic human being, too.  I don’t think I’ve ever met a kid with better manners than Mckenna, and I find her emotional generosity remarkable.”

    “It always amazes me when you come across that fine balance of being seasoned enough to understand how a set works—each take, the actors, directors and so on—and still able to be a kid,” says Wilson.  “You can tell Mckenna is having fun and loves acting, but you can give her a note and she goes back and does it; she has real technical prowess.”

    WILSON, FARMIGA RETURN AS THE WARRENS IN

    ANNABELLE COMES HOME  




     

    The Conjuring Universe headliners Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles as demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren in New Line Cinema’s new horror thriller “Annabelle Comes Home.”

     

    Wilson says he and co-star Farmiga “love playing these roles because we know we’re going to get to do some high drama with some high level scares, dealing with some pretty dark things, but also find all those moments to show that other side to this couple.  In this film especially, our part is largely that of loving parents to Judy.”

     

    Farmiga steps into the role of Lorraine Warren for the fourth time and adds that much of what attracts her to these stories is “the purity of their love and how connected they are, how they balance each other.  That, as well as the idea of their faith being such a strong force for them, is in such stark contrast to the darkness they encounter.”

     

    “Annabelle Comes Home” opens with the Warrens taking the sinister doll Annabelle from the nursing students—who are more than happy to relinquish her—and then driving along a rather deserted rural road with the doll sitting, disconcertingly life-like, in the back seat of their car.  “Something very squirrely happens on the way—which is based on a real situation that the Warrens encountered on the way home with the doll—that’s a bit of a hint of things to come,” Wilson teases, “but obviously they make it home.”


    Despite the frightening nature of the material, Wilson and Farmiga have always infused their characters’ on-screen relationship with a sweetness that reflects that of their real-life counterparts, and working together again was a pleasure for both.  Farmiga says that no matter the seriousness of the scene they are shooting, “I love the amount of smiles that Patrick doles out on a daily basis,” even joking that “once I timed him just to see, and in the span of 60 seconds he smiled at least 15 times.”


    Wilson rejoins, “Vera is really fun to scare—and it’s easy, which is helpful on a film like this.  Of course, she’s one of the best actresses around, period.  There’s not a moment that she doesn’t mine, while still finding the lightness, too.”

     

    Farmiga adds, “Patrick is wonderful, and we have such a good time.”  And after all of these films together, she observes, “He’s like family.  Like my goofball cousin.”

     

    Both actors feel it helps not to approach the work on these films as if it’s a horror movie, because they are portraying a couple who really lived it and handled it with such intelligence and grace.  “I think of these not as a genre story, but as a love story,” Farmiga concludes, “and I think that’s why it works for us.”
