Summit Entertainment has acquired the thriller pitch Conjuring in a bidding war, from sibling writers Chad and Carey Hayes (Whiteout), who have been set to pen the script.

According to Variety, the deal comes with life rights to the Perron family, whose experiences in their Rhode Island home informs the film, and Ed and Lorraine Warren, experts in paranormal activities who investigated and battled the activities occurring in the Perron household and did the same in the cases that inspired The Amityville Horror and The Haunting in Connecticut.

Summit is keeping the specifics under wraps, but ghosts and demonic possession are at the center of the plot.

No production date has been set.
