Director and star discuss the sequel at NYCC...
Shock Till You Drop spoke with Patrick Wilson and James Wan at New York Comic-Con about their upcoming film The Conjuring and got them to discuss the status of their upcoming film Insidious 2 as well. Check out the highlights:
Wan on being more involved than he was with Saw on the sequel: "I think the sequel to Insidious is kind of my reaction to Saw where for my own reason I wasn't as involved in the sequels, and so I felt with Insidious, think it would be good to shepherd it and keep it more in track to the version I had when I made the first film so that it doesn't detour too far. So yeah, I'm kind of working with Leigh on the story and the script."
Wan on whether a sequel was always envisioned: "I never set out to make sequels to any of my films I direct. If they happen, that's great because that means people out there love it and they want more of it, but I always felt with Insidious we created this really interesting world that we can explore more, and so even though we didn't set out to make a sequel, I felt that there are stories still out there that could be told."
Wilson on when it will happen: "We're still trying to figure out this Insidious sequel and then we should jump onto that. I think that will probably be the next big thing. I might find something small in between that I can dig into, but I'm happy being a Dad."
