First announcement from the Blumhouse virtual event BlumFest 2020 was a bit of a shock, and really took me by surprise. Blumhouse is working together with Sony Pictures for a brand new instalment in the Insidious franchise.
The fifth film in the franchise will see the return of Patrick Wilson and Ty Simpkins who will be reprising their roles from the previous films. Patrick Wilson will also be directing the film, making this his directorial debut.
“I’m honoured and thrilled to be at the helm of the next Insidious instalment, which will provide an amazing chance to unpack everything the Lamberts went through a decade ago, as well as deal with the consequences of their choices,” Wilson said during the ongoing virtual BlumFest. “Directing the movie is both professionally and personally a full circle moment for me, and I am extremely grateful to be entrusted in continuing to tell this frightening and haunting story. Into the further we go…”
Jason Blum confirmed during the event that the film can be expected in cinemas sometime in 2022.
