‘Anabelle’ Sequel In the Works

New Line is moving forward with a sequel to last year’s horror hit “Annabelle” with Gary Dauberman  returning to write a script.

Annabelle,” directed by John R. Leonetti with Peter Safaran and James Wan producing, generated over $250 million in worldwide grosses on a $6.5 million budget as a spin-off from Wan’s 2013 hit “The Conjuring.” The film was based on a possessed doll named Annabelle, as described by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, and set in California in 1969.

“Annabelle” starred Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton and Alfre Woodard. There are no other attachments to the sequel  at this point.

Dauberman’s credits include “Crime of the Century” for Chris Morgan and Universal and “Vessels,” a mystery set on the Queen Mary. He also sold an alien drama pilot called “Terrestrial” to USA.

Dauberman is repped by ICM Partners. The news was first reported by The Tracking Board.
