The sequel to the American Independent horror film, Insidious, is set to begin shooting this summer.
The supernatural scarer – which would even spook the Ghostbusters – was so popular last year, that film makers James Wan and Leigh Wannell, already have plans for Insidious 2.
After rumours that the pair would only make a follow up film if they had an especially good idea, the producers – known for the Saw franchise – must have had a spark of inspiration because they hope to begin filming this summer.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film could be released as soon as 2013 and may be distributed by FilmDistrict in the US, Alliance in Canada, Momentum Pictures in the UK and Sony everywhere else.
The spine tingling horror was one of last year’s most profitable films; it also received three Scream Award nominations including Best Horror Actor and Best Horror Actress.
Rose Bryne (Troy, Bridesmaids) and Patrick Wilson (The A-Team ) may even be on board for the follow up film. The Bloody Disgusting reported a statement from Whannel saying, ‘Insidious was the most fun project I’ve ever worked on. From start to finish it was an absolute joy… James and I both 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 first film saw a happy family forced to move home after they believe their house was haunted. However, they do not realise that Dalton, their young son, is a spirit portal for demons and ghosts. At the end on the first film, there were a lot of loose ends, so we are hoping these mysteries will be revealed in the sequel.
