Annabelle is at the Center of a Spin-Off of The Conjuring

Warner Bros. and New Line are putting some serious faith behind what The Conjuring offered over the summer (and by "offer," we mean thrills and box office bucks).

We already know that a sequel is in the works with Chad and Carey Hayes returning to script. While there are a lot of rumored plot details, nothing has been confirmed.

But that's not all. The studio is apparently at work on a spin-off film.

According to Schmoes Know, the spin-off feature will be based on a tale surrounding the Annabelle doll that kicked off The Conjuring. John Leonnetti--who shot James Wan's film--is going to direct sometime in spring 2014.



So, it's a prequel tale for Annabelle, in some respect, since we saw the tail-end of her mischief at the beginning of The Conjuring before she was housed in Ed and Lorraine Warren's museum.

The question is: Will the studio roll this out as a theatrical film or something direct-to-DVD/VOD?
