‘Insidious: Chapter 3’ Writer Leigh Whannell Takes Over Franchise’s Directing Reigns

Leigh Whannell, the screenwriter (and co-star) behind the first two Insidious movies, is now the man behind the camera for Insidious: Chapter 3. Whannell’s Insidious collaborator James Wan has been busy shooting and editing Fast & Furious 7, so it’s great to see Whannell finally directing one of his scripts.

Insidious: Chapter 3 features franchise stalwart Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye), but this time we follow the psychic’s adventures before the events of the first two movies. The prequel has Elise using her ability to make contact with the dead to help a teenager (Stefanie Scott) who is being terrorized by a malevolent entity.

Opening May 29, 2015, Insidious: Chapter 3 co-stars Dermot Mulroney and Angus Sampson.

Leigh Whannell will take part on a Facebook Q&A on the film’s official Facebook page at 4 pm pst. Check out https://www.facebook.com/InsidiousMovie for the live Q&A.
