Leigh Whannel was at SXSW promoting his latest film, The Mule, and while that’s intriguing in and of itself, people really want to know: What’s the status of Insidious 3? He told Screen Rant:
“[Producer] Jason Blum will probably kill me if I say anything,” Whannell said of the franchise’s third installment. ” … But I can say that it’s not based around the Lambert family anymore, it’s not Rose Byrne’s character — which I actually really liked, going back and just wiping the slate clean and starting over again. It felt like writing the first film, ’cause you weren’t bound to any particular character. … It felt really good.”
It was also confirmed that both Whannel and Angus Sampson will reprise their roles as Specs and Tucker, the ghost hunters.
We loved Insidious 2, to even say it was better than the first one ! More scares, more intensity and the tension was cranked up much much higher than the first. If they start a fresh it would leave the second installment on a cliffhanger that will never be answered…
