Summit Entertainment just won a bidding war (and paid a shtiload of money) for the rights to the pitch for a haunted house flick called CONJURING, to be written by WHITEOUT writers Chad and Carey Hayes. Just a pitch, yo, not even a full-fledged script. That must have been one killer pitch!
While the specifics to the story haven't been revealed just yet, we do know this: ghosts and demonic possession are at the center of the plot.
And that's all you had to say! So far there have been a ton of linkage to other haunted house films like THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT and THE AMITYVILLE HORROR, so methinks this one may be loosely based on a true story, but that's entirely speculation at this point.
And if you're like me, you have no idea what the hell the word 'conjuring' really means, so I looked it up. 'Conjuring' is defined as calling up a spirit or devil . Good to know! Now it makes sense!
Stick around for more on CONJURING as we hear it!
