Insidious, released in April 2011, was one of the most profitable films of last year, grossing $97 million worldwide on a budget of $1.5 million. It was therefore inevitable that a sequel would be on the way… The cast, writer Leigh Whannell and director James Wan are returning for Insidious Chapter 2, which Film District will release August 30, 2013. Jason Blum, who produced Insidious, is producing through his Blumhouse Productions. Brian Kavanaugh Jones, Oren Peli, Steven Schneider, and Charles Layton are executive producing the film, which is set to begin production January 15 in Los Angeles. Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne will reprise their roles in the sequel, about a couple and their son, confronting the demons that still possess their young boy.
