The Conjuring

Posted on

Patrick Wilson (reteaming with Insidious director James Wan) stars with Vera Farmiga as real-life supernatural investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who came to the aid of an exorcism-needing family (led by Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor) in 1970s Rhode Island. Wilson was ”a little bit trepidatious” about appearing in another franchise-ready horror film (Insidious: Chapter 2 is due in September) but wanted to play Warren, a legend in paranormal circles. ”He strongly believed,” says the actor. ”But he spent more time convincing people the creak in their house was not a ghost.” Wilson says he’d even play Warren again — should the power of the box office compel him.
