New Line and director James Wan (Saw, Dead Silence, Insidious) are tapping the Twilight and Dark Knight franchises for youngsters to star in horror pic The Warren Files, signing up Mackenzie Foy and Joey King to play members of the true-life Perron family, reports Variety.
The Perrons claimed they “lived among the dead” in the 1970s as spirits — both friendly and sinister — inhabited their Rhode Island farmhouse. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are playing the investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. Lilli Taylor and Ron Livingston will portray the Perrons.
Both child thesps appear in highly anticipated franchise finales coming this year: Foy will play the half-vampire offspring Renesmee Cullen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2. King has a small part in The Dark Knight Rises.
Peter Safran and Tony DeRosa-Grund will produce “The Warren Files” — formerly titled The Conjuring — through the Safran Co. and DeRosa-Grund’s Evergreen Media Group. Wan is directing from a script by Chad and Carey Hayes with shooting scheduled to start February 21 in North Carolina.
