Following the news earlier this week that Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson had joined the cast of James Wan’s The Conjuring, comes word, via The Hollywood Reporter, that Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor are signing on as well.
The project, which the article suggests may have revereted to an untitled status, takes place in the 1970s and is based on the book “House of Darkness, House of Light: The True Story” by Andrea Perron. In the 1970s, the Perrons lived in a Rhode Island home that was claimed to have been a portal for friendly and evil spirits.
Livingston and Taylor will play a couple living in the house, which comes under investigation by Farmiga and Wilson’s supernatural investigators, Lorraine and Ed Warren.
Chad and Carey Hayes penned the script, which was originally set up in 2009 at Summit Entertainment. The project is now set up at New Line.
The Hayes brothers previously penned House of Wax, The Reaping and Whiteout.
