Jason Blum and Patrick Wilson have started the drive for five.
The fifth installment in the Insidious horror franchise has started production with an expanded cast, and now producer Jason Blum and director/star Patrick Wilson have taken to social media to fan the flames of excitement. Check out Blum’s tweet–courtesy of Collider–on this page.

The next entry in the series–that began back in 2010 with director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell–“is happening,” Blum tweeted. “And it’s going to be great. You all are going to love it.”
The film–scheduled for a July 7, 2023 theatrical release–is helmed by Wilson from a screenplay by Scott Teems (Halloween Kills) from a story by Whannell, who wrote the first four films of the franchise.
Insidious 5–which stars Wilson, Rose Byrne, Sinclair Daniel, Peter Dager and Hiam Abbass–reportedly picks up a decade after the second installment, as Dalton Lambert (Ty Simpkins) starts college.
The original Insidious–starring Wilson, Byrne, Simpkins, Barbara Hershey and Lin Shaye–follows a couple whose son slips into a comatose state and becomes a vessel for entities in an astral dimension called The Further who want to inhabit his body.
That first movie–a huge box office hit that raked in $97 million worldwide on a $1.5-million budget–spawned Chapter 2 in 2013 and two prequels–Chapter 3 (2015) and The Last Key (2018).
