We’ve been nudging everyone involved in FilmDistrict’s smash hit Insidious about a sequel since the movie kicked the boxoffice’s ass back in April. Even though everyone involved appears a bit hesitant to acknowledge sequel potential, Sony Pictures – who scored worldwide rights out of the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2010 – is planning ahead.
According to Fusible, Sony has nabbed the following domain names: Insidious2movie.com, Insidious2.net and Insidious2-movie.net.
A few months back STYD had talked with producer Jason Blum who explained: “There’s no plan, no release date, nothing like that. I think James feels the same as Oren [Peli]. Oren was very skeptical about doing a sequel to Paranormal Activity until Michael [Perry] pitched an idea and it made sense. If Leigh comes up with a story that’s inventive and you feel like there’s a story to tell – as opposed to ‘let’s make another movie and make money’ – and he comes up with something James feels is worth making we would do it. And if Leigh doesn’t, we won’t.”
I wonder if Sony can move ahead on the project without their involvement? They did make both direct-to-video titles Hostel 3 and Quarantine 2.
In the first, Josh (Patrick Wilson) and Renai (Rose Byrne) make the terrifying discovery that the body of their comatose boy has become a magnet for malevolent entities, while his consciousness lies trapped in the dark and insidious realm known as The Further.
