Insidious 5 has been officially confirmed, with original cast members Patrick Wilson and Ty Simpkins returning to the supernatural horror movie franchise.
At horror studio Blumhouse’s first-ever BlumFest event on Thursday 29th October, it was also announced that Wilson will make his directorial debut by helming the fifth instalment.
The latest film will take place 10 years after the events of Insidious: Chapter 2, with Dalton going off to college. Along with directing, Wilson will be reprising his role as Dalton’s dad Josh Lambert, saying in a statement, “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.”
Scott Teems has written the screenplay from a story by franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell.
