First Images of 'Saw' Creator's NC-Filmed 'Conjuring' Appear
Filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina, the first few images from the upcoming thriller The Conjuring, from director James Wan (Saw, Insidious) have been revealed online, teasing one of the most buzzed about horror films in recent years.
Warner Bros. Pictures recently moved the film from its original January opening date confidently to mid-summer July, an unusual time of year not typically known for scary movies, which has many industry insiders already calling The Conjuring a possible “game changer” for the genre.
The Conjuring is inspired by the true story of the Perron family, who claimed they ”lived among the dead” in the 1970s, and who hired paranormal investigators Ed and Loraine Warren to help them battle the spirits that reportedly haunted their Rhode Island farmhouse.
Vera Farmiga (Orphan) and Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) star as the Warrens, while Lili Taylor (The Haunting) and Ron Livingston (Office Space) play the real life Perrons. The cast also includes Mackenzie Foy (Twilight: Breaking Dawn), Joey King (Crazy Stupid Love), Hayley McFarland, and Shanley Caswell.
The Conjuring will haunt theaters on July 19, 2013.
