INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 Will Haunt Theaters on April 3, 2015

     November 18, 2013


Focus Features has announced that the third installment in the Insidious horror franchise will be released in theaters on April 3, 2015.  We learned a few months ago that Leigh Whannell was returning to pen the script for Insidious: Chapter 3, but further details on the follow-up are still unknown.  James Wan directed the first two films to great success, but he has since expressed interest in trying his hand at other genres after this summer’s one-two horror punch of The Conjuring and Insidious: Chapter 2.  Indeed, he’s currently hard at work filming the action sequel Fast & Furious 7, so it’s unlikely he will return to helm Chapter 3.

Insidious: Chapter 3 is currently slated to open directly opposite the Keanu Reeves/Rachel McAdams sci-fi pic Passengers, which will mark Game of Thrones helmer Brian Kirk’s feature directorial debut.  Insidious: Chapter 2 earned $40 million on its opening weekend this past September and went on to gross a total of $148.8 million worldwide, which isn’t bad considering the total budget was $5 million.
