Bloody Disgusting received exclusive word that Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson and Andrew Astor have officially joined Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins and Barbara Hershey in James Wan’s Insidious Chapter 2.
Whannell and Sampson return as the pictured Specs and Tucker, respectively, the two ghost hunters in Wan’s first Insidious. Astor also returns as the young Foster Lambert, the boy whose body is “haunted.”
As she did in the first Insidious, Oscar-nominated Hershey will play the role of Lorraine Lambert, the mother to Patrick Wilson’s Josh Lambert and the grandmother to the demon-possessed boy Dalton. We’re told we’ll be seeing flashbacks of various characters in the film that lead up to the events in the first.
Shooting is scheduled for January 28 in Los Angeles, CA. FilmDistrict will release in theaters August 30.
