Parents (Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne) must protect their comatose son from malevolent forces.
Considering the micro-budget horror movie Insidious turned out to be the most profitable movie of 2011 — the movie was made for $1.5 million and earned $97 million worldwide — it comes as no surprise that FilmDistrict would like to turn the movie into a franchise. What is surprising is that it has taken this long to get confirmation that a sequel is in the works. Producer Jason Blum said last year that director James Wan (Saw movies) would only consider making a sequel if screenwriter Leigh Whannell came up "with a story that's inventive" and "worth making." Well, apparently he has because THR reports Wan and Whannell are currently "in talks" with the studio about Insidious 2, and that the movie will likely go into production this year, aimed at a 2013 release.
