‘Spectre’ Actress Stephanie Sigman to Star in ‘Annabelle’ Sequel (EXCLUSIVE)

Following the success of “Spectre,” Stephanie Sigman is now eyeing a new franchise, as the actress has closed a deal to co-star with Miranda Otto in New Line’s “Annabelle 2.”

David Sandberg is directing with “The Conjuring’s” James Wan and Peter Safran producing.

The story follows a dollmaker and his wife, set 20 years after the tragic death of their daughter. They welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, who soon become the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.

Sigman will play Sister Charlotte in the pic.

Gary Dauberman is penning the script with the film set to bow on May 19, 2017.

Sigman had a scene-stealing role as one of the Bond girls in “Spectre.” She was tapped to star in John Ridley’s untitled pilot for ABC after working on season 2 of “American Crime.” ABC did not pick up the pilot, but sources say Sigman’s role was highly coveted by other actresses.

Sigman was also recently seen in series “Narcos” on Netflix. She is repped by ICM Partners.
