Insidious producer Jason Blum has revealed that a sequel to the ghostly chillfest is a possibility.
When asked if Insidious 2 might be on the cards, the producer revealed that a follow-up depends on whether director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell feel like coming up with a concept.
“I wouldn't say we're not considering it,” says Blum. “There's no plan, no release date, nothing like that. I think James feels the same as Oren [Peli, producer].
“Oren was very sceptical about doing a sequel to Paranormal Activity until Michael [Perry] pitched an idea and it made sense.
“If Leigh comes up with a story that's inventive and you feel like there's a story to tell - as opposed to ‘let's make another movie and make money’ - and he comes up with something James feels is worth making we would do it. And if Leigh doesn't, we won't.”
Insidious was made on a budget of just £1.5m, but went on to take an impressive $52.7m at the US box office alone.
It’s been celebrated for its effective boo-scares, though the general consensus is that the film’s second half couldn’t deliver on the film’s stellar opening build-up.
It did end on a killer cliffhanger, though, which means some fans could be interested in the story being continued.
