With two Conjuring films, two Annabelle films and one for The Nun it’s interesting to see The Conjuring Universe‘s timeline start to come together. The Conjuring Universe‘s earliest established point is in The Nun, followed by Annabelle: Creation, Annabelle, The Conjuring and the latest Conjuring 2. With that said, where would the next film to begin production from that universe fit in the timeline?
The next film to start production will be Annabelle 3, Which does not have an official title yet. Cinemablend had the opportunity to talk with the writer and director for the film Gary Dauberman, who revealed when this film will take place.
“This is the Warrens picking up where they bring Annabelle home after we see that in The Conjuring, after they visit the nurses’ apartment. It happens a little while after that, so they bring it home and they’re aware of the doll’s evil, and sort of worry about her presence among the other artifacts. So before Conjuring 2, after [the beginning of] Conjuring.”
Although Dauberman has written the other two Annabelle films, this will be his directorial debut. We already have an idea of what the film will be about during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con. It will be taking place in the Warren’s Artifact Museum. During his conversation with Cinemablend he also talked about the setting of the film and how him being homesick affected his scrpit for Annabelle 3.
“It’s really bringing Annabelle back home, and sort of the franchise to a degree after going… I was out there in Romania for a couple months making [The Nun], you know, you get homesick from being away from family, and that really kind of informed my creative direction for this movie. It’s the artifact room; it’s the Warren’s house so it’s sort of in suburbia… For me it’s sort of bringing the franchise back home and then bringing in sort of the idea of a horror movie happening inside the Warren’s house where there’s this room in their basement that houses all these kinds of evil and horror. So we kind of have a lot of fun and a lot of scares with that.”
The question that keeps being raised, is whether or not this film will include Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson’s Lorraine and Ed Warren characters in Annabelle 3. A question that Dauberman once again did not answer. But being that this film is taking place in the home, it would be hard to imagine them not being in the film.
