‘The Conjuring’ Writers On Board ‘San Andreas 3D’ (EXCLUSIVE)

New Line has been developing earthquake drama since 2011

New Line has tapped “The Conjuring” writing team of Carey Hayes and Chad Hayes to pen earthquake disaster movie “San Andreas: 3D.”

The Conjuring,” starring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor, opens Friday amid strong reviews.

The “San Andreas” project has been in development since 2011 with New Line-based Beau Flynn producing through his FlynnPictureCo. banner with Tripp Vinson. Brad Peyton is attached to direct.

Story takes place when a massive quake strikes California and centers on one man who must make the treacherous journey across the state to rescue his estranged daughter. Carlton Cuse and Allan Loeb previously wrote “San Andreas” scripts after the team of Jeremy Passmore and Andre Fabrizio sold the pitch and wrote the first two drafts.

Flynn’s credits include “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” “The Rite” and “Red Dawn.” He’s also developing a third “Journey” pic for New Line and is currently producing “Hercules,” starring Dwayne Johnson.

New Line topper Toby Emmerich recently told Variety that New Line is developing a sequel to “The Conjuring,” based on the work of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren and portrayed in the film by Wilson and Farmiga. The Hayes brothers are working on that script.

The Hayes siblings talked extensively with Lorraine Warren in writing “The Conjuring” script. They are repped by WME.
