INSIDIOUS 3 in the Works

James Wan's horror sequel "Insidious Chapter 2" opened very strongly this past weekend, bringing in $41 million on a $5 million budget. A success by such monetary standards would natural inspire the studio to want a third film, and a third film is what we're getting.

It's been confirmed that writer Leigh Whannell, who penned the first two screenplays and also co-stared as Specs in the film, will be back to write the third. Producer Jason Blum, who produced the first two films as well many other successful horror films such as the "Paranormal Activity" franchise, "The Purge" and "Sinister", is also returning.

There is no mention of a director so far and it seems unlikely that Wan will be back, as he recently stated that he is "finished with the horror genre". His next film is "Fast and Furious 7", so he is certainly straying away from horror, and replacing his scares with cars. It would be cool if he decided to finish the trilogy however, as that so rarely happens these days, and he's so great at perfecting the formula.

There is also no confirmation on whether any of the actors such as Rose Byrne or Patrick Wilson will return. It too seems unlikely however, being that one of their bigger pulls to return to the franchise for the second time, was to work with Wan again.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
