As we learned last month, Sony Pictures is heading back into The Further with the long-awaited Insidious 5, releasing in theaters everywhere on July 7, 2023.
After starring in the first two movies as Josh Lambert, we learned in 2020 that Patrick Wilson is returning to the franchise as the *director* of the upcoming fifth installment.
Patrick Wilson will also star alongside the returning Ty Simpkins as Dalton Lambert, and Deadline reports today that Rose Byrne will also be back as Renai Lambert.
Sinclair Daniel, Peter Dager, and Hiam Abbass have also joined the cast.
Insidious: Chapter 5 will pick up with the Lamberts ten years after the last movie.
“Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) heads east to drop his son Dalton (Ty Simpkins) off at an idyllic, ivy-covered university. However, Dalton’s college dream becomes a nightmare when the repressed demons of his past suddenly return to haunt them both.”
This will be Wilson’s debut as a director. Scott Teems (Halloween Kills) wrote the script based on a story by franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell (The Invisible Man).
“I’m honored and thrilled to be at the helm of the next Insidious installment, which will provide an amazing chance to unpack everything the Lamberts went through a decade ago, as well as deal with the consequences of their choices,” Wilson said in a statement back in 2020. “Directing the movie is both professionally and personally a full circle moment for me, and I am extremely grateful to be entrusted in continuing to tell this frightening and haunting story. Into the further we go…”
The first two Insidious movies were written by Leigh Whannell and directed by James Wan, centered on the Lambert family and their terrifying struggles deep within The Further. The most recent film in franchise, Insidious: The Last Key, was released back in 2018.
