Leigh Whannell did some pretty crazy stuff before he got behind the camera for Insidious: Chapter 3 and his Venom-esque Upgrade. You see, Whannell is the co-creator and writer behind both SAW and Insidious, each directed by James Wan. The two films have spawned massive franchises and while Wan went on to direct The Conjuring for New Line, Whannell continued to work on the Insidious films and also blew our minds with his 80s-themed sci-fi horror Upgrade.
Continuing to forge his own path, Whannell is currently writing his next horror project, which he just teased on Twitter. If history tells us anything, we’re in for a treat!
I’m writing a horror film right now that I can’t wait to unleash on you fuckers.
