Leigh Whannell goes into the further alone.
The next chapter in the Insidious franchise sees Leigh Whannell, who co-wrote and starred in the previous two films, take the helm now that James Wan has opted to use his talents outside of the realm of horror. With a release date already set for May 29th, 2015, Insidious: Chapter 3 is moving along nicely and today we’ve got our first teaser poster for the film. While it’s not the greatest, the art does display some very creepy text that warns of something living in the vents of your room.
As far as the third film is concerned, Whannell has decided to take the franchise in an intriguing direction as it will act as a prequel rather than a sequel. Now that he’s steering the franchise without long-time collaborator, James Wan, it’s important for Whannell to breathe new life into the mythology that was setup in the first two films. And by taking the prequel route, it allows the film to explore a different story without having to worry about what happened in the previous films. It’s a smart move if you ask me and I’m excited to see where Whannell takes the franchise now.
There isn’t much known about the plot of this one, but what we do know is that it will reveal more mysteries of the otherworldly realm The Further.
Insidious: Chapter 3 stars Dermot Mulroney and Stefanie Scott alongside Lin Shaye, Angus Sampson, and Mr. Whannell, with the latter trio reprising their roles from the first two movies in the franchise.
