Insidious 3 is Coming!

Source: ComingSoon

September 16, 2013

Entertainment One (eOne), FilmDistrict, and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (SPWA) announced today that together they will be developing the third chapter of the micro-budgeted "Insidious" film franchise which Leigh Whannell has signed on to write. Whannell has written both Insidious and Insidious Chapter 2, which just had a stellar first weekend release in North America debuting to more than $40 million at the box office making it one of the largest horror genre openings ever and one of the biggest openings for a film released in the month of September. Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions, which produced both Insidious and Insidious Chapter 2, is producing the next installment along with Oren Peli. Steven Schneider, Brian Kavanaugh Jones, Peter Schlessel, Lia Buman and Xavier Marchand are executive producing.

In a joint statement, Peter Schlessel, FilmDistrict's CEO, Xavier Marchand, eOne's President, Film Production, and Steven Bersch, President of SPWA, said, "The release of the first 'Insidious' resonated with audiences around the world and quickly became one of the most talked about films in 2011. This weekend moviegoers enjoyed the terrifying continuation of the first film and we are confident they will be excited to see the third chapter of the 'Insidious' world. There is nobody better suited to bring audiences the next chapter of this haunting story than Leigh who has brilliantly written both 'Insidious' and 'Insidious Chapter 2.'"

Jason Blum, founder and CEO of Blumhouse said, "FilmDistrict, eOne and SPWA have been incredible partners on the 'Insidious' franchise. We are all so grateful for how audiences embraced James Wan and Leigh's latest film and are excited to see what Leigh has in store for the third chapter.”

The first Insidious told the story of Josh and Renai Lambert and their son Dalton, confronting the demons that possess the young boy. The project was picked up by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival and distributed by FilmDistrict in the US. eOne handles rights to the film in Canada, U.K. and Spain, and Sony handles rights in the rest of the world. It was released on April 1, 2011, and has grossed $97 million worldwide. With the picture's reported $1.5 million budget, it has led to the film being called the most profitable film of 2011.

Insidious Chapter 2 follows the haunted Lambert family as they seek to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world. Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins, and Barbara Hershey reprised their roles in the film directed by James Wan, who also directed the first installment.

Insidious: Chapter 3 Joins the Pack in 2015

Source: ComingSoon

November 18, 2013

It's already been noted a few times what a crazy year 2015 is going to be for movies, especially anticipated sequels, and you can add another one to the list as it was announced today that Insidious Chapter 3, the second horror franchise created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell of "Saw" fame, will open in North America on April 3 of that year.

So far, all we know about the threequel, which was teased at the end of Insidous Chapter 2--a sequel that grossed $149 million worldwide since opening in September--is that it will be written once again by Whannell. He'll also likely return as his supernatural investigator character "Specs."

No director has been announced for the movie as of yet--original director James Wan is currently working on finishing up Fast & Furious 7 for a 2014 release--but one has to expect that announcement will come soon now that they've set a release date.

It's also interesting to note that the movie will be released officially under the "Focus Features" banner following the merger of Focus with original Insidious distributor FilmDistrict.

Although April 2015 is still fairly open, as of now, Insidious Chapter 3 will be taking on Keanu Reeves' sci-fi romance Passengers, which was just put on that date last week by the Weinstein Company.
