The Insidious franchise has truly blossomed into a series that includes several sequels as well as prequel films that have expanded the universe in ways that other horror titles have never seen before. Blumhouse has taken the franchise in several directions since its conception, and now one of the stars of Insidious have spoken up about the idea of coming back for a fifth film. When discussing Insidious with Hollywood reporter, actor Patrick Wilson spoke up and expressed a slight interest in returning for another round of Insidious, telling the publication:
I never look at anything as closed," Wilson continued, "I don't know what you would do, but I never felt like it was closed. I just felt like for Josh Lambert, we've already seen him possessed and free of possession. There's not a whole lot for that guy to do anymore. I don't know where they would want to go with the series, but I never close any doors. There's no big red door that's closed."
Wilson has become quite a name in horror after the Insidious films and the additionally successful Conjuring franchise, so the fact that he isn't quite ready to call it quits means that we can at least keep our fingers crossed at more Insidious films with focus on the family that started it all. Another familiar face from Insidious, horror veteran Lin Shaye also acknowledged the fifth film recently and explained that there's a solid chance we'll see Insidious 5 hit theaters in 2020, telling Daily Dead:
I've heard rumblings. There's no script as far as I know. I kind of have an idea what the story might be about, and that I don't feel comfortable talking about, because nothing has been brought out into the open. But as far as I've heard, there will be another one. And it'll be sort of a different setup in a way, of some of the same characters from a couple of the past episodes, too. It's an exciting idea that I've heard, but I don't have any information about it. There's no script as far as I know yet. And there's been no date in terms of beginning photography or anything. It'll probably be in the next year or so, because Blumhouse is a little busy, as we all know. But I've got my fingers crossed there will be one more, I hope."
Though there seems to be very little information about what the next Insidious will depict or the official cast involved, it sounds like the stars of the film are keeping the door open for more. If there's a chance to reunite the stars of the original Insidious, Insidious 5 could shape up to be one of the more promising films since Insidious 2.
