Fans of the surprise horror movie hit Insidious, which cost $1.5 million to make and made $97 million at the box office, will be pleased to know that a sequel is in fact still on the way, and that an official release date has now been set. Better yet, everyone is coming back to make the movie.
FilmDistrict has set an August 30, 2013 release for the movie, which will be titled Insidious Chapter 2. James Wan returns to direct the movie, with stars Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, and Ty Simpkins all set to reprise their roles. Original screenwriter Leigh Whannell also returns.
The first movie told the story of a married couple (Wilson and Byrne) as they deal with a haunted house and the attempted possession of their young son. Without spoiling anything, anyone who saw the movie knows that it left a nice door open for the follow-up, so it’s assumed that’s where they’ll be running with the storyline.
Production is scheduled to begin on January 15th in Los Angeles.
Are you excited for Insidious Chapter 2? So long as there’s no more of that half Darth Maul, half Animal from The Muppets demon thingy, they should be okay.
