Prepare to get spooked as the infamous raggedy doll will be back to haunt people in the third instalment of the Annabelle series.

New Line is expanding the profitable Conjuring universe with a third Annabelle movie that will open on July 3, 2019, reports variety.com.

Gary Dauberman, who has written the scripts for both Annabelle movies, will make his directorial debut on the untitled Annabelle project. He is also writing its script.

James Wan’s Atomic Monster and the Peter Safran Company will produce the project. The four movies in the Conjuring universe, which includes the two Annabelle titles and two Conjuring movies — have generated more than $1.1 billion worldwide.

The fifth Conjuring universe film The Nun will open on September 7. Dauberman also wrote the script for The Nun with Wan and is one of the three writers with screenplay credits on horror blockbuster It and next year’s sequel It: Chapter 2.

The porcelain doll was a key component of The Conjuring, inspired by a true-story narrated by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Warrens were portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga.

It certainly seems like we are in for a spooky treat!
