2 Oct – Two young actresses have been cast to star in the much anticipated third instalment of the "Annabelle" movie series.
Currently going by "Annabelle 3", the horror movie has added "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" actress Madison Iseman as one of its leads, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Iseman will play the babysitter to the daughter of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, Judy, who will be played by "Captain Marvel" actress McKenna Grace.
Reportedly, there will be two teen babysitters as revealed a few days ago when Grace's involvement was announced but there's no update yet on the second babysitter.
"Annabelle 3" will focus on the titular doll that the Warrens have put in their Artifacts Room in the hope of sealing it and its evil powers there.
Of course, Annabelle manages to wreak havoc anyway as, under her instigation, the Artifacts Room comes alive (think "Night at the Museum") and Judy and her babysitters will have to deal with the terror.
Both Iseman and Grace are no strangers to horror movies since Iseman will be seen soon as Sarah Quinn in "Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween", while Grace played Juliet Walker in 2017's "Amityville: The Awakening".
It is still not confirmed whether Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will return to reprise their roles as the Warrens, who they've starred as since the first "The Conjuring" movie. (We did see them popping up in other spinoffs of the franchise, like in the recent "The Nun).
We'll find out when "Annabelle 3" begins haunting the big screens in July 2019.
