Remember when movies came out without numbers in the titles? Pepperidge Farm remembers. Yes, since the Insidious movies have been making money, the fifth one is on the way and just finished filming.
Insidious 5 will star Patrick Wilson, who has also served as director. This will be the first time Wilson has directed anything like this.
I genuinely had to look up which one was Insidious, since I get it confused with The Conjuring, both of which star Wilson. The Conjuring is about the paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren. Insidious is about a kid trapped in a coma.
As I remember, Insidious had a pretty good trilogy that tied all the stories together in one account. I had no idea there was a fourth one, so the fifth one is a real surprise.
The movie was announced filming had wrapped by Wilson’s wife, Dagmara Dominczyk on Twitter.
Wilson has said this new movie has been written by Scott Teems, known for Halloween Kills, based on an idea by Leigh Whannell, who created the franchise with the original director, James Wan. The story will be:
Ten years after the end of Insidious 2. Josh Lambert heads east to drop his son Dalton off at an idyllic, ivy-covered university. However, Dalton’s college dream becomes a nightmare when the repressed demons of his past suddenly return to haunt them both.
There is no release date set for Insidious 5 yet, but Blumhouse is producing it.
