Well here’s some good news. Sony is planning a sequel to their hit horror film Insidious. The proof? Insidious2movie.com, Insidious2.net and Insidious2-movie.net are all recently registered domain names by the studio, leading us to believe that they are gearing up for a sequel.
Producer Jason Blum spoke about a sequel not too long ago, saying:
“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.”
It makes sense that we’d get a sequel. Insidious cost $1.5 million to produce and brought in a worldwide box office total of $97,009,150. Sony refuses to comment but considering the success that the first film found, I wouldn’t be too surprised if we got an official announcement shortly.
Personally, I loved Insidious, it’s probably one of my top 10 films of 2011. Obviously I’d be thrilled to see a sequel and I expect we’ll get something official in the near future.
We’ll keep you posted if we hear more.
