FilmDistrict's set an August 30, 2013 release date for Insidious Chapter 2. The sequel to the 2011 horror hit from the Saw team of James Wan and Leigh Whannell will be bringing back Insidious stars Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, and Ty Simpkins as well as Wan as director, Whannell as screenwriter, and Jason Blum as producer.
Filming's expected to begin in mid-January in LA.
Commenting on the sequel to 2011's most financially successful film, Blum stated: "Blumhouse is committed to empowering filmmakers to tell their stories and we are excited to do that once again with the team from the first Insidious including James and Leigh and the original cast. We also look forward to working with our partners on the first film- FilmDistrict, Alliance and Sony."
In addition to the Insidious sequel, Wan has The Conjuring (also with his Insidious star Patrick Wilson) coming out in 2013. He also recently signed on to direct the feature film version of MacGyver, set up at Warner Bros.
