Although we are no closer to knowing what James Wan’s upcoming top-secret horror project is all about just yet, we at least know one star who will be in it. According to Variety, the still untitled project has added Annabelle Wallis in what is presumably a leading role for the movie.
The actress previously worked with Wan within the Conjuring universe as she appeared in both Annabelle and Annabelle: Creation over the past few years. This casting marks the first for this movie, which has been teased as the filmmaker’s next focus before delving into work on a sequel to Aquaman. Further casting or even a title for the film are not yet available.
Details on this project are still very scarce, with plot details being kept heavily under wraps, but on top of directing, Wan will also co-write alongside Ingrid Bisu (The Nun). The film is being produced via the Atomic Monster banner, which is led by the director and longtime collaborator Michael Clear. Financing are Starlight Media and Midas Innovation, who will retain distributing rights in China.
Filming on this unnamed project is set to kick off this fall in Los Angeles and should be complete before Wan moves forward on Aquaman 2 next year. As previously mentioned, details are still fairly slim right now, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated with all the latest here on Dead Entertainment.
