James Wan has developed quite a name for himself in the horror world as the director of low budget hits like Saw and Insidious. Now in post-production of his latest movie call The Conjuring, some details about the film are steadily starting to be released. For those of you who are fans of shows like Ghost Hunters where paranormal experts try to make contact with spirits and draw conclusions on their existence. Specifically this film will feature a look into Ed and Lorraine Warren.
For those of you who do not know who Ed and Lorraine Warren (like myself), they were the original investigators into the paranormal over 30 years ago before it was “cool.” Any horror fan should be familiar with the classic The Amityville Horror, well Ed and Lorraine were the original investigators to look into the spiritual happenings in the house back in the late 1970’s. Wan has stated in an interview that The Conjuring is going to be sort of a biopic about this couple who cases have inspired some of Hollywood’s most popular horror films. Check out his brief interview with Clevver Movies:
After a panel session at the latest Comic-Con in New York it was said that The Conjuring will follow Ed and Lorraine’s outing to a Rhode Island farmhouse that has a witches curse on it that threatens a couple and their five children. Not much else has been mentioned other than that Wan wants to stay as loyal to what Lorraine Warren had to tell them.
Casting features Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as the Warrens and Lili Taylor and Ron Livingston as the Rhode Island couple in the cursed home. To watch an interview with Patrick will about The Conjuring, Watchmen, and an Insidious sequel click here.
It is currently scheduled for a July 2013 release and as soon as a trailer is officially release to the public I will post it here.
