Insidious 2 confirmed

Insidious was one of the most profitable films of 2011, costing only $1.5 million to make and grossing over $100 million worldwide.  The movie was also received extremely well by critics, so it isn’t a major surprise that a sequel  is on the horizon, but will the sequel live up to the original or is this another case of Hollywood greed?

Insidious was written by Leigh Whannel, who also had a role in the film, and was directed by James Wan, both are returning to these roles for the sequel.  This is a good sign for the quality of the sequel, but it still has not been confirmed whether or not any of the characters from the first film will return.  Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne starred in the film and neither has been confirmed to have any involvement in the sequel.  Though it is entirely possible that they will be in the film, there is a chance the story could be unrelated to the original film, think Mirrors and Mirrors 2.

Hopefully, more information will be released soon, until then all we can do is let our imaginations run wild and preemptively catch up on the sleep that will be lost the nights after the films release.
