It was rumored Johnny Depp was circling the lead, but ultimately the role went to Will Smith. Then New Line Cinema lost its exciting director, but a replacement has now been found. Director David Frankel may take over the project.

Annabelle was a pretty solid little horror movie whose greatest sin was being a spin-off of the far superior The Conjuring. It was also a massive hit, grossing $256 million worldwide against a budget of only $6.5 million. The fact that we’re getting news of a sequel now and not a year ago is shocking. The horror genre, after all, is no stranger to franchises that move at the speed of light and milk the goodwill of fans the world over. So congratulations on not being that, Annabelle 2.
For everything we know so far about the next adventure of that demonic doll, hit the jump.

If the raunchy, pseudo-remake of Adventures in Babysitting that was The Sitter starring Jonah Hill didn’t do anything for you, maybe adding some horror into the equation will make for a better formula.
New Line is in the process of setting up a new horror comedy called The Babysitter with Charlie’s Angels and This Means War helmer McG in final negotiations to sit in the director’s chair. The script has been kicking around Hollywood for a little while having appeared on the Black List in the #4 spot back in 2014, and now it finally seems to be getting some traction.

Cary Fukunaga was going to direct a two-film adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel It, and that was exciting. But, as often happens, there were differences of opinion between Fukunaga and the execs at New Line, and the parties went their separate ways. The It project is still probably going to be made, just with new scripts and new director Andy Muschietti.
Now Fukunaga has opened up about how he wrote the two halves of It to be an “unconventional horror movie,” and the new things he brought to the story in order to give his version its own life. Read More »
