Insidious 3 Has A Director
By Dr. Know on May 7th, 2014
Insidious: Chapter 3 has a director finally, and it’s none other than series co-star and co-writer Leigh Whannell.
Not a total shock when you consider he’s been collaborating with James Wan (director of the previous two instalments) for more than a decade-plus in Hollywood. They hit a home run ten years ago when they low-budget wonder Saw spawned not only a career for the two young Aussies but also a very lucrative franchise for Lionsgate.
Here’s the official word straight from Wan and Whannell:

Wan, of course, has been mired in production hell on Fast & Furious 7 since the untimely demise of series star Paul Walker late last year. Whether or not he returns to the bread and butter of horror remains to be seen since he’s been vocal in the past about needing a break.
No mention of where where the story will head in the third chapter, but recently Whannell told fans the third film will be more in line with the first Insidious in terms of tone.
Insidious: Chapter 3 is currently scheduled for release April 3, 2015.
