Following a huge opening weekend for Insidious: Chapter 2 ($41 million), Film District has announced that it has officially green lit a third Insidious movie. Those who saw the second chapter to James Wan's horror franchise know that the ending left open the possibility of a third movie.
Last week, Wan had said that he was done with the horror-movie genre, which means the third chapter of the Lambert-family horror tale will be in the hands of a new director. Wan has moved on and is currently filming the seventh installment to the Fast & Furious franchise.
Producer Jason Blum remains skeptical though, saying, "I think he says he's not gonna make another horror movie, but I'm sure that he will and it will be even better for having done Fast & Furious."
THR reports that the third Insidious movie will bring back Lin Shaye's character as well as ghost hunters Specs and Tucker.
Who do you think should direct Insidious 3? How big of a loss is not having Wan involved with this next film?

First off a big congrats to The INSIDIOUS Writing team James Wan & Leigh Whannell and the Cast for another "spectacular" haunt-Thriller INSIDIOUS II. It was truly a haunting chiller-scary story-Script: it had me and many of the viewing audience on the edge of our seats in fear. I don't think I would want to live in that Mansion-house after going through such frightening Drama what the LAMBERT Family (JOSH and All) experienced although quite beautiful Home but haunting as hell...'that ghost in white PARKER'S Mother (and the Bride In Black)...'Oh, my God SHE was "wicked-Evil" very frightening in your "face" ghost! The possessed JOSH was on the edge-creepy Actor Patrick Wilson was "fantastic" as were the whole Insidious 2 Cast totally shined.
Looking forward to the 3rd INSIDIOUS Saga and thrilled to hear that the Ghost Investigating Team of Specs & Tucker along w/Ghost Specialist Elise will be back!! I had no ideal the Script-Writer Leigh Whannel was Spec's: he was in the 1st Insidious, too....'I feel like a "ding-dong" not knowing earlier: I'm like he looks just like that cute-guy in the Interview w/Director James Wan but his not wearing glasses & his name was LEIGH, too. Well, cool the Insidious sagas will continue for ELISE has seen something quite other Worldly sinister-haunting in another Family's home. What did she see!?! Well, only Wan and Whannel's know and curious to see the next chiller: Producers Jason Blum and Oren Peli will be producing the 3rd saga, as well.
