Announced: Leigh Whannell Writing “Insidious: Chapter 3”

September 17, 2013

FilmDistrict and Sony Pictures have officially announced that INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 will happen.

THR broke the news on Twitter that Leigh Whannell is currently attached to write the third chapter. Whannell has been a frequent collaborator with director James Wan. Whannell co-wrote Saw with Wan, and also wrote both Insidious films. He also starred as “Specs”, one half of the ghost hunting team.

Rumor is that the third film will be bringing back Lin Shaye’s character as well as Specs and Tucker (all three pictured below).

Insidious: Chapter 2 has made an impressive $41M this past Friday the 13th weekend. Since these films are so cheap to produce and make a huge profit, another sequel was a no-brainer.

The only question now is who will direct? James Wan is currently directing FAST & FURIOUS 7 and recently called The Conjuring his swan song to horror films. Is he done with horror and focusing on bigger things? Will he direct the third chapter? We’ll just have to be patient and see. It’s a good thing that Whannell is the one writing the sequel, but without Wan in the chair, will it be as successful with a different director?
