Alfre Woodard Materializes in Horror-Thriller ‘Annabelle’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Shooting began this week in Los Angeles

Alfre Woodard has joined production of “Annabelle,” New Line’s spinoff of “The Conjuring,” which began shooting this week in Los Angeles.

Peter Safran and “The Conjuring” director James Wan are producing.

Variety first reported in July that New Line was developing a sequel to “The Conjuring,” a tale of demonic possession set in a Rhode Island farmhouse. The film was a massive success with a worldwide gross of $318 million on a $20 million budget.

Annabelle Wallis (“Peaky Blinders”) and Ward Horton are starring in “Annabelle” with John Leonetti, the cinematographer on “The Conjuring,” directing from a script by Gary Dauberman.

“The Conjuring” included a haunted doll named Annabelle as part of a collection of demonic objects assembled by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who were portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. New Line is still developing a sequel to “The Conjuring.”

Woodard is currently seen in “12 Years a Slave.” She is repped by ICM Partners and managed by Frank Frattaroli at Circle of Confusion.
