The Annabelle series of horror movies is continuing, with a third instalment being put together for next year. And a bit of progress on the project too, as we get news of who is going to direct the next film.

According to THR, Gary Dauberman, who’s penned the two movies to date, as well as working on the screenplay for Stephen King’s It, is to make his directorial debut with the new movie, It’s unclear at the moment when the new film will be set, given that the second movie in the series acted as a prequel to the first.

What we do know, though, is that Annabelle 3, or whatever it ends up being called, will be in cinemas in July 2019. Dauberman, incidentally, is also writing the screenplay for the movie.
