An Insidious sequel has been all but inevitable ever since the film grossed $97 million worldwide on a $1.5 million budget, putting cartoon dollar signs in studio execs’ eyes. We got our first sign that the wheels were in motion when Sony locked down related domain names like insidious2movie.com late last year, and now things are officially moving forward. Director James Wan and scribe Leigh Whannell are in talks to return for a new Insidious film, with Jason Blum set to produce. Brian Kavanaugh Jones, Oren Peli, and Steven Schneider will executive produce.
There’s no word yet on whether stars Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne will reprise their roles for the sequel. But for what it’s worth, Wilson apparently likes working with Wan — the two are already planning to reunite for a different horror project, formerly titled The Conjuring. No plot details for Insidious 2 (or whatever it’ll be called) have been revealed at this time, though the first film’s ending could easily serve as a setup for a follow-up.
After the jump, Bridget Jones’s Baby hits a speed bump but plans to soldier on.
