Not only are we going to see a sequel to The Conjuring, we are also getting a prequel based on the Annabelle doll. Director of Photography John R. Leonetti will be directing the Annabelle spin off. However, the studios have not chosen a director for The Conjuring 2 yet. We know James Wan will not be coming back, so fingers crossed for somebody who can live up to the role. The Conjuring 2 is being written by the Hayes brothers, who also penned the first movie.
