Though production wrapped on James Wan’s latest Giallo-inspired horror Malignant last December, Deadline has now reported that Mckenna Grace (Annabelle Comes Home) will star in the film.
Grace starred last year in Annabelle Comes Home, a spin-off set in Wan’s Conjuring Universe of horror films. A third Conjuring film, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, is set for release this September from director Michael Chaves (The Curse of La Llorona). Grace, meanwhile, will be seen next in Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
There are currently no plot details for Malignant, but it is set to take inspiration from the Italian giallo genre.
Grace joins a cast that includes Maddie Hasson, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Abel, George Young, Michole Briana White and Jacqueline McKenzie. Wan directed from a screenplay by Akela Cooper and JT Petty, and story by Wan and Ingrid Bisu.
Malignant will be released on August 14th, 2020.
