Prepare to be surprised. Following a successful opening weekend for Insidious: Chapter 2, Entertainment One, Film District, and Sony Pictures have officially announced that they are developing Insidious: Chapter 3.
Leigh Whannell, who wrote the first two films, has reportedly signed on to write the screenplay for the third chapter. Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions banner will return to produce along with Oren Peli.
The first two films starred Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins, Lin Shaye, and Barbara Hershey and were directed by James Wan. It’s unclear if Wan will return to direct. He has recently declared that he is done with the horror genre (at least for now as he focuses on Fast & Furious 7). It’s wise to predict though that Insidious: Chapter 3 will be rushed into production, giving Wan no chance and no time to helm the sequel. I’m sure a replacement director will be found as soon as possible.
