Yesterday, we brought you a series of behind the scenes photos from Insidious 3. Today, a teaser trailer for the upcoming film has hit the web and we have your first look after the jump. So come inside and take a look.
Insidious 3 marks James Wan’s departure from the franchise. Wan’s longtime collaborator Leigh Whannell has penned the script for this third installment and is also directing the entry. Insidious: Chapter 3 is currently slated for a May 29, 2015 release
The film will also see the departure of Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, and Ty Simpkins as the Lambert family. The upcoming third installment will introduce a new cast of a new cast of characters, including Dermot Mulroney (Stoker) and Stefanie Scott (Jem and the Holograms). Lin Shaye will be staying on as paranormal investigator Elise.
The story arc of Insidious 3 will delve more into The Further. It will function as a prequel to the events of the first film with a father and daughter plagued by the terrors of The Further. Searching for answers, they enlist the services of a psychic named Elise Rainier.
The latest chapter in the Insidious franchise will be Leigh Whannell’s first time directing a feature. Considering that Whannell co-wrote the previous two installments, I wouldn’t expect too dramatic a shift from what has worked in the first and second films.
We will keep you apprised as more details become available closer to the film’s May 29, 2015 release.
