Sony Pictures just revealed a line of upcoming movies at CinemaCon, and Insidious Chapter 4 is one of them.
The title will be Insidious: The Next Chapter but besides that we don’t know much.
A year ago writer and director Leigh Whannell said this about a future Insidious movie:
“I haven’t really thought about it yet. But for the purposes of this interview, I’ll say that I’d like to explore the time between this film and the first film,” Whannell told We Got This Covered last year. “That whole area there where Elise has rediscovered her gift, I think you could have a lot of adventures before she arrives. So I think there is a lot of room there. We’ve kind of established Lin [Shaye] in this particular film as kind of this superhero, so that would be kind of interesting to explore in the other films.”
Whether Insidious 4 will take place in between Insidious Chapter 3 and the first two movies, only time will tell.
UPDATE – May 16, 2016: According to Blumhouse.com there’s a whole lot of news regarding the next chapter of the INSIDIOUS franchise.
Insidious: Chapter 4 is the title being used and the release date is set for October 20, 2017. Perfect for next year’s Halloween.
Also, Insidious: Chapter 4 will be with fan favorite Lin Shaye as she’s returning to her role as the parapsychologist Elise Rainier.
Insidious series co-creator Leigh Whannell will be writing the script while Jason Blum, Oren Peli and co-creator James Wan will all be on as producers.
Finally, the big news is that Insidious: Chapter 4 will be directed by Adam Robitel. He made the amazing indie horror movie The Taking of Deborah Logan last year. We loved that movie with a passion, so this all sounds very good to us!
UPDATE – September 5, 2017: The title is now Insidious: The Last Key and it will premiere January 5, 2018. Dr.
Elise Rainier, the brilliant parapsychologist faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet: in her own family home.
