Annabelle Wallis, one of the stars of the upcoming horror movie Malignant, has spoken about her experience of working on the film alongside director James Wan.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Wallis described Malignant as “brave” and “genre-bending” while providing nothing but praise towards the script and the director.
“Oh yes! Oh my god. I mean, I think we have something very special,” Wallis revealed. “I think it’s genre-bending. I think it’s so brave. It’s so original. I just haven’t read anything like it. And you know, again, I’m at a place in my life and my career where it’s time to be brave. It’s time to push. And James Wan, we worked together on Annabelle, which was the first time I ever came to America. And then, he watched The Loudest Voice, and he said he loved my work. So, he was like, ‘I wrote this part for you, Annabelle. Let’s collaborate.’ I think I’ve found in him such a wonderful collaborator, and I know that we will continue working together for years to come. He’s kind, and he’s so good at what he does.”
“And I think it’s really going to be something that audiences are pretty wowed by because it’s a real passion project for him,” Wallis continued. “So, I’m very excited. Yeah, let’s see! That’s what good art and good cinema is. You kind of throw it out there, and then you don’t know how people are going to react. That’s the exciting thing, you know.”
There are currently no plot details for Malignant, but we do know the cast includes Maddie Hasson, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Abel, George Young, Michole Briana White, McKenna Grace, and Jacqueline McKenzie. The film is to be directed and co-produced by James Wan and written by Wan and Ingrid Bisu.
