Actor Patrick Wilson, linked to the first two films in Blumhouse’s Insidious series, has been announced as the director of the fifth, which marks his debut behind the camera. He will also reprise the lead role.
We broke up, speaking of Insidious 5, one of the most successful horror sagas with audiences (542 million dollars at the world box office, against a very modest budget), with the Lin Shaye’s promise that the film would be made. It was just a year ago, then what we all know happened and we never talked about it again. Today the first edition of BlumFest was held, and at Blumhouse it was officially announced that to direct and interpret it will be Patrick Wilson, which will do his debut behind the camera with this horror that saw him as the protagonist of the first 2 films.
The story of Insidious 5 – written by Scott Teems on the subject of Leigh Whannell – It will take place 10 years after the events of the first film, when son Dalton (You Simpkins) goes to college. Wilson will again be Josh Lambert, the head of the family targeted by malevolent spirits. The actor commented on the announcement:
“I am honored and thrilled to be the director of the next Insidious film, which will give us a fantastic chance to look at everything that happened to the Lamberts ten years ago and to address the consequences of their choices. Directing the film completes the circle for me. , both professionally and personally, and I am extremely grateful for having been commissioned to tell this frightening and disturbing story. Let’s go to Elsewhere … “.
Whereas the latter two were prequels, the latter of which focused on the character of Lin Shaye, we do not know if the actress – officially in Elsewhere – will also return for the fifth film, but we find Patrick Wilson – who as a lover of horror is also involved in the series The Conjuring – very convincing in the role and we approve of his promotion to director.
