Leonetti, who served as cinematographer on “The Conjuring.” James Wan, director of “The Conjuring,” produced “Annabelle” along with Peter Safran. Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter and Hans Ritter served as executive producers for the film which came from the script written by Gary Dauberman. “Annabelle” will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack for $39.99 and includes the film in high definition on Blu-ray disc, a DVD, and a digital version of the movie in Digital HD with UltraViolet.
