Summit Entertainment Buys Conjuring


Summit Entertainment has bought Conjuring, a thriller pitch from sibling scribes Chad and Carey Hayes (Whiteout), who will write the script.

The deal comes with life rights to the Perron family, whose experiences in their Rhode Island home informs the film, and Ed and Lorraine Warren, experts in paranormal activities who investigated and battled the activities occurring in the Perron household and did the same in the cases that inspired The Amityville Horror and The Haunting in Connecticut.

Summit is keeping the specifics under wraps, but ghosts and demonic possession are at the center of the plot, says Variety.
