James Wan conjures up The Warren Files

Horror fans know James Wan. The director made Saw one of the biggest horror franchises of all time and he turned last year's Insidious into a huge hit. Now the man is back behind the camera with a new terrifying tale: The Warren Files.

The film is based on the real-life cases of Ed and Lorraine Warren, who reached out to help the Perron family after they claimed they were haunted in Rhode Island. The Warrens were also involved in the infamous Amityville haunting.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga have signed on to play the Warrens. Wan just cast his Perron family, with Lilli Taylor and Ron Livingston playing the parents and Mackenzie Foy and Joey King their children.

The casting isn't as big a piece of news as the project itself. Anyone who's watched Paranormal State knows who Lorraine Warren is and her exploits are ripe for a decent movie. I also have complete faith in Wan as a director when it comes to this type of material.

The Warren Files begins production later this month.
