Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Growing a Horror franchise is a very hard thing to do. So many films are made each year and only a handful actually have success. One franchise that has done really well is the INSIDIOUS franchise. With Blumhouse on board and having had James Wan direct the first two and produce on all three, it's no wonder that these movies have found there place within the Horror community.
Last year's INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 managed to do really well. Directed by series screenwriter/co-star Leigh Whannelln, the film was able to rake in ten times the amount of the original budget at the box office. So it came as no surprise last month when we learned that a Chapter 4 was coming.
As the momentum begins to build for the new film, we have now learned that franchise staple Lin Shaye will indeed be returning as Elise Rainier for the fourth chapter.
There is no specific timeline giving at this time, but we can expect to either see another prequel that would take place before Elise helped out the Lambert family, or a sequel with Elise continuing on in The Further.
This time around, Whannelln will be writing a screenplay for Adam Robitel to direct. Robitel previously directed THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN.
In addition, INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 4 has been given a release date of October 20th, 2017.
Producing the film will be Jason Blum, Oren Peli and James Wan, with Steven Schneider, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, and Charles Layton executive producing. Backing the project is Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions with Universal Pictures handling the domestic distribution.
Remember that as of now, INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 4 will be arriving in theaters on October 20th, 2017.
