Insidious gets a sequel

Although it didn’t make its way onto the list of 2011’s highest grossers, Insidious was undeniably one of the year’s biggest success stories. Made for only $1.5 million, the tale of a haunted child took home almost $100 million worldwide.

Therefore, Deadline‘s report of a sequel beginning production is not at all surprising.

Insidious was far from the first low budget success for Australian director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell; the duo are also responsible for spawning the Saw franchise.

Whannell will write the script for Insidious 2, while Wan is in talks to direct. Paranormal Activitys Oren Peli will executive produce, just as he did on the first flick.

It is unknown if stars Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Angus Sampson and Whannell will return, though it seems likely considering the up-in-the-air ending of the original.

Discuss: Keen for this to turn into a franchise just like Saw?
