The GeekTyrant went New York Comic Con and shared details from the panel of James Wan's The Conjuring. STYD interviewed Wan and Patrick Wilson about Insidious 2 before the panel, and we've got some great details from that discussion.
The Conjuring will wrap production in a few more weeks, and is set for release in July. Wan revealed that he plans to be more involved with the sequel to Insidious, than he was with the entire Saw franchise.
“I think the sequel to Insidious is kind of my reaction to Saw where for my own reason I wasn’t as involved in the sequels, and so I felt with Insidious, think it would be good to shepherd it and keep it more in track to the version I had when I made the first film so that it doesn’t detour too far. So yeah, I’m kind of working with Leigh on the story and the script.”
Here is what he had to say about his long-term plans for Insidious, and whether he had looked at the big picture when writing the original.
“I never set out to make sequels to any of my films I direct. If they happen, that’s great because that means people out there love it and they want more of it, but I always felt with Insidious we created this really interesting world that we can explore more, and so even though we didn’t set out to make a sequel, I felt that there are stories still out there that could be told.”
Here is what Wilson stated about the sequel, which he believes will happen sooner than later:
“We’re still trying to figure out this Insidious sequel and then we should jump onto that. I think that will probably be the next big thing. I might find something small in between that I can dig into, but I’m happy being a Dad.”
Insidious is one of the scariest films I have ever seen, and I am interested to see how much creepier the sequel is. Are you looking forward to seeing the sequel?
