Horror fans, listen up! ‘Insidious 5’ is on the way!
Patrick Wilson will make his directorial debut with Insidious 5 and revealed that they will begin filming later in the year.
According to an interview with ScreenRant via Collider, it is getting ready to begin production. When asked if his upcoming film “Moonfall” is moving forward, star and director Patrick Wilson gave this update.
Alongside a few various company, Screenrant had the amazing chance to go to the press trip for the new Roland Emmerich sci-fic disaster film, Moonfall, which is coming to theaters tomorrow, February 4. During the trip, Wilson was inquired as to whether Insidious 5 was pushing ahead, and the actor affirms that “Yeah, we are.”
He follows up by saying that, “we’re scouting locations now, and we start shooting in the spring.”
He said it was, and that they’re scouting areas for a spring start. Wilson had this to say about the project, which will be his directorial debut:
“It’s something that I’m super passionate about, and there hasn’t been a day since they pitched me the idea that I haven’t been all in. It’s been a lot of work by Scott Teems, the writer, and me. And Leigh Whannell has helped out obviously a ton, and of course Blumhouse is a great partner. I’ve done a bunch of stuff with them, so I couldn’t be happier to have my first experience with a very helpful and comfortable group of people that, for some reason, trust me. So, we’ll see.”
On Both Sides of the Camera
Wilson will return to the film to reprise his role as Josh Lambert. According to Deadline, Ty Simpkins will reprise his role as his son Dalton Lambert, and the film will take place ten years after the first film, with Dalton Lambert starting college. Rose Byrne was not confirmed as a returning cast member during the BlumFest event, and no one is presently listed on IMDB, at least not on the public site.
At the 2020 event, Wilson said:
“I’m honored and thrilled to be at the helm of the next Insidious installment, 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.”
“Insidious,” released in 2010, kickstarted the popular horror franchise, and spawned three sequels thus far. The story revolves around a family who experience paranormal events.
The first two films in the series were directed by James Wan, the third by writer Leigh Whannell, and the fourth by Adam Robitel, “Insidious: The Last Key.” Scott Teems will pen the script for “Insidious 5”, with Whannell writing the story.
