Insidious: Chapter 5 Releasing Next July

Sony looks set to return to The Further as they announce a release date for Insidious: Chapter 5.

First announced at Blumfest back in 2020, the film went into production this spring. And today Sony have set a July 7th, 2023 release date for the highly anticipated sequel. Patrick Wilson is back as Josh Lambert, however he will be making his directorial debut with this film.

"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. 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…"

Ty Simpkins is also reprising his role as Dalton Lambert. Scott Teems (Halloween Kills, Firestarter) has written the script based off an idea by franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell. Insidious: Chapter 5, a direct sequel to the first two films, will pick up with the Lamberts ten years after the last movie, as Dalton begins college.
