Earlier this month, we reported that the title of the next installment of the Insidious franchise had been confirmed as Insidious: The Red Door. We also shared the summer release date. Now, the first trailer has arrived today, taking you back into “The Further.”
Patrick Wilson, who starred in the first two films, is returning to the franchise, not just to star as Josh Lambert, but will also make his directorial debut with the fifth installment. He will star alongside returning cast members Ty Simpkins, who will reprise his role as Dalton Lambert, Josh’s son, and Rose Byrne, who played Josh’s wife, Renai Lambert.
The new movie is set ten years after the events of the second film. “Josh Lambert (Wilson) heads east to drop his son Dalton (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.”
Scott Teems (Halloween Kills) penned the script based on a story by franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell (The Invisible Man).
The first two Insidious movies were directed by James Wan and written by Leigh Whannell. They centered on the Lambert family and the terrifying things in “The Further.”
Insidious: The Red Door opens in theaters nationwide on July 7, 2023.
