James Wan’s Insidious: Chapter 2 hits theaters via FilmDistrict on Friday, September 13th (Wan’s other summer effort, The Conjuring hits two months earlier on July 19th).
BD Stringer Erik Myers was onhand at the Stanley Film Festival in Estes Park, Colorado this past weekend and he caught up with producer Jason Blum to talk about the sequel. While they didn’t have a lot of time to chat, Blum remarked, “I saw it last week. There’s a rough cut of it, very cool. I think it does what a sequel should do. It brings back enough of the first movie so it doesn’t feel like a totally new thing, but there’s a ton of different stuff in it. And a lot of the mythology from the first movie… you’re going to get a lot of answers in the second movie. I’m looking forward to people seeing it.”
Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins, Barbara Hershey, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson, Andrew Astor, Jocelin Donahue and Danielle Bisutti all star in the sequel.
I recently spent some time on the set of the film and can’t wait to report what I saw with you. Myers also has some coverage from The Purge at the fest that we’ll be posting over the next few days.
