“INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3” Director Revealed


It seems Leigh Whannell will take on another role in the INSIDIOUS series, that of director.

The frequent co-writing partner of James Wan (together they brought us SAW, DEAD SILENCE and INSIDIOUS 1 & 2), actor and writer Whannell will succeed the filmmaker as director of the next installment of the now massively successful INSIDIOUS films. We’re certainly excited to see what he can do.

The first film saw the Lambert family contend with a host of spirits when their son falls into a coma, astral projects and attracts the attention of a demon. The second continued their saga and found the roots of the family trouble in father Patrick Wilson’s past. The third film however will move on to another family, as Whannell has indicated. The connecting link is likely to be Specs & Tucker, the paranormal investigating team played by Whannell and Angus Sampson. The writer also previously noted CHAPTER 3 will more closely resemble the first film, which hopefully doesn’t mean it will be less of a bonkers adventure in the Further.

Blumhouse will produce INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3, which is slated for an April 3, 2015 release. Find the announcement tweet from Wan below.
