Be Careful What You Wish For in Annabelle Director’s Latest

Posted on: July 29th, 2016

Annabelle helmer John Leonetti (pictured) is locked to direct Broad Green Pictures’ Monkey’s Paw-esque horror Wish Upon, which is due to start filming this autumn.

Barbara Marshall wrote the script, which landed itself a coveted spot on 2015’s Black List. The film is to be produced by Busted Shark Production’s Sherryl Clark, fresh from upcoming sci-fi horror Viral.

The film centers on a 16-year-old misfit who finds a magic box that promises a chance at the life she’s always wanted only to discover that each wish would demand a deadly payment.

Leonetti is an experienced cinematographer and DoP with a number of genre credits to his name, including Child’s Play 3, The Mask and Piranha 3D, as well as the first two Insidious films, which he also co-produced. He was offered the chance to direct Annabelle following his stellar work on The Conjuring, and the spinoff proved a huge hit for New Line Cinema.

Wish Upon will begin shooting when Leonetti has completed post-production on horror-thriller The Wolves at the Door, which he directed.
