The romance between James Wan and Leigh Whannell continues as the horror duo announce plans for an Insidious sequel.
Wan and Whannell (their names flow perfectly together, don’t ya think?) spoke to Variety about their ideas for a follow up to their 2010 ghost story hit. Whannell told the mag, “I believe that James Wan and I achieved what we set out to do — create a horror film for horror fans. So it is with great excitement that we announce our commitment to a second installment of this story.”
The writer continued, “Both of us feel that we can mine more terror from the world we created and know that if we assemble every member of the original team, we will have an amazing continuation of the story for fans of the first film.”
The films’ mastermind did not delve into too much detail on the sequel’s plot and didn’t confirm if the story would pick up where it left off, following the married couple, played by Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson.
Personally, I wasn’t too impressed with Insidious and it didn’t scare me as much as I thought it would. Before seeing the film, I didn’t even want to watch the previews before bed; however, upon a completed viewing, I forgot about it soon after. It didn’t really do too much for me but obviously, a lot of horror fans enjoyed it and are probably excited about news for a sequel.
