McKenzie Foy and Joey King are in talks to star opposite Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Lilli Taylor, and Ron Livingston in New Line’s horror feature The Warren Files, formerly known as The Conjuring.  The script by Chad and Carey Hayes is based on the story of the Perron family who inhabited a haunted Rhode Island farmhouse in the 1970s.  Taylor and Livingston are the Perrons.  Farmiga and Wilson will play Ed and Lorraine Warren, a husband and wife team of psychic investigators.  According to Variety, director James Wan (Insidious) will start shooting in North Carolina later this month.

Foy is most known for her role as Renesmee in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, with Part 2 on the way in November 2012.  King is the utterly charming star of 2010’s Ramona and Beezus who will next be seen as Young Talia Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises on July 20.  Hit the jump for more on the real life tale that inspired the project.

This is the Wikipedia version of the story:

From the Throat of the World Mountain area of Burrillville comes a very well known New England legend of a witch named Bethesda Sherman who, according to the legend, sacrificed her infant child as an offering to Dovahkiin, then hung herself in her barn. The story says that prior to her hanging Bethesda, a known practicing witch, placed a curse on anyone that would take her land/farm. More than two dozen mysterious deaths took place on the lands since the purported curse was made. In the 1970′s a family named Perron moved into the Sherman farmhouse. There are numerous reports and eyewitness accounts of supernatural phenomenon that took place while the Perron’s lived in the home, physical attacks by the spirit of the witch on the Perron family and an attempted demonic possession of the mother, Carolyn Perron, by the spirit of the witch. Famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren investigated the case and aided the Perron family in their fight against this demonic entity.

Taylor and Livingston will portray the Perrons.
