So what if James Wan is busy filming Vin Diesel being a careless & hairless behind the wheel! We got Leigh Whannell (writer of Insidious 1&2 and also happens to play the snarky, but lovable ghost hunter Specs) at the helm and the trailer below will help calm the nerves of franchise fans who happen to be nervous about Wan’s departure. For the most part the Insidious flicks are is either ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’ for most die-hard genre fans. Although the box office proves that it’s mostly love it by the mainstream. I will say that enjoy these flicks and can’t wait to see where Whannell is planning on taking the series. Whether or not he has the same style and ability to scare the hell out of the audience (I’m man enough and drunk enough to admit he got me more than a couple of times) is yet to be seen. Insidious: Chapter 3 is set for wide release on June 5th via Focus Features.
Written and Directed by Leigh Whannell
Starring Dermot Mulroney, Stefanie Scott, Lin Shaye, Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell
