Wilson, Byrne not returning for Insidious Chapter 3


Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne won’t be back for the next “Insidious” movie, the film’s co-writer tells We Got This Covered.

Leigh Whannell, also a co-star of the “Insidious” films, tells the site that the next film will see the menacing spites haunting a new family.

I can’t say too much, but I think we’re going to go off in a different direction with a new family, and not pick up from where the second one left off. I think Patrick [Wilson] and Rose [Byrne] have had enough punishment – we need to move on and punish someone new. I think that’s probably all Jason Blum would allow me to say, he’s comfortable with me telling people we’re not going with the Lambert family again. It was great to write because it was like writing the first film.

While the ghosts may be terrorizing a new family, Whannell and Angus Sampson will be back as paranormal investigators Specs and Tucker.

“I’d like to do something different with them, you know”, he says.

“Insidious Chapter 3” is due for release in 2015.
