Insidious 2

Director James Wan confirms that he’s hard at work on an Insidious sequel…

When horror films make a profit, talk inevitably turns to the possibility of sequels. That’s certainly been the case with Insidious, which brought in just shy of $100m at the worldwide box office off a budget of just $1.5m. That’s a similar rate of return to Saw which, like Insidious, was also directed by James Wan.

Wan was at New York Comic Con this past weekend promoting his latest movie, The Conjuring, and here’s what he had to say about the follow up to Insidious whilst speaking to the fine folks at Shocktillyoudrop:

“I think the sequel to Insidious is my reaction to Saw, where for my own reason I wasn’t as involved in the sequels, and so I felt with Insidious, think it would be good to shepherd it and keep it more in track to the version I had when I made the first film so that it doesn’t detour too far.”

Confirming he’s actively involved in developing the script, Wan said that  “I never set out to make sequels to any of my films I direct; if they happen, that’s great because that means people out there love it and they wand more of it, but I always felt with Insidious we created this really interesting world that we can explore more, and so even though we didn’t set out to make a sequel, I felt that there are stories out there that could be told.”

At the convention the site also caught up with star Patrick Wilson who indicated that he’s very much on board with the sequel and that he imagines that it will be the next big project he’s involved with. It certainly sounds promising, and it sounds like things might spark into life with Insidious 2 soon…
