Vera Farmiga in "The Conjuring"

And not wanting to be labeled a horror director, Wan will now approach "Fast & Furious 7" as a family-centric heist movie. "I got this gig because I didn't talk about cars, I didn't talk about action, I talked about the character arcs and the family unit."

As for Farmiga, she approached "The Conjuring" as a love story between Ed and Lorraine, as well as "a story about compassion, giving and receiving it in those desperate times of need. And the strong maternal theme about mothers protecting their daughters. Thematically, if you look at my choices, there is some exploration of maternal angst and maternal heroism."

Farmiga just wanted to absorb Lorraine's "mad style: the way she communicates with her hands and how she moves through space." She insisted on wearing her style of funky clothes that she calls "punk," and likes having a real life model to mesh with her own personality.

It looks like "The Conjuring," which was pushed back from a January release to this Friday because of positive test screenings, will be a franchise for Farmiga, who is signed for a sequel.
