It’s been over a decade since James Wan’s Insidious was released, but it still creeps into our minds when we think of horror. And Sony Pictures is heading back into the franchise with the long-awaited Insidious 5, set to haunt the genre fans another time in theaters everywhere on July 7, 2023, and now we have some casting news on the anticipated project. Deadline reports the film is about to go into production starring Peter Dager, Sinclair Daniel, and Hiam Abbass currently in unknown roles.
They are rejoined by the legacy cast members of Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, and Ty Simpkins, while we did learn the film would be centered around Dalton going to college, we now have a more detailed plot:
Set ten years after the end of Insidious 2, Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) heads east to drop his son Dalton (Ty Simpkins) 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.
This will be Wilson’s debut as a director. He said in a statement back in 2020:
“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,” Wilson said in a statement back in 2020. “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…”
It’s going to be interesting to see where Wilson will take us with the franchise. With his work dedicated to the Conjuring franchise, Insidious, and the very underrated Netflix film In the Tall Grass, genre fans can’t help but be excited to see what he does in his directorial debut.
