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 back in April when we learned that a Fourth Chapter was coming.
This time around, Whannelln wrote the screenplay for Adam Robitel to direct. Robitel previously directed THE TAKING OF DEBORAH LOGAN.
Robitel has posted the following on Twitter that principal photography has now officially wrapped on INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 4.
As far as the story goes, 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.
Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell, and Angus Sampson will be returning to the cast, and will be joined by Kirk Acevedo, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, and Caitlin Gerard.
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.
INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 4 currently has a release date of October 20, 2017.
