Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson retained for horror movie sequel

Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson retained for horror movie sequel

Though there’s no word on whether Rose Byrne or Patrick Wilson will reprise their roles, “Insidious 2” will see the return of the paranormal investigator duo played by Leigh Whannell and Angus Sampson.

You’ll recall that those two, Specs and Tucker, assisted spirit-communicator Elise (Lin Shaye) as she attempted to expunge the bad spites from a haunted house.

writer Whannell, who plays Specs, revealed his return in an interview with Dread Central.

“I can say that yes, my character will be seen in Insidious 2… It may probably bum a lot of people out, though, to hear this news. It’s part of the reason I don’t even read the internet message boards anymore; there was this hatred that spewed out from fans saying ‘I hated those guys! They sucked! They ruined the movie!’ so there will probably be a lot of people out there who will be disappointed to hear that the Specs and Tucker characters will be coming back. (laughs)”

They didn’t bother me.
