Blumhouse released a video detailing that Lin Shaye will be returning as parapsychologist Elise Rainier in the latest Insidious film, Insidious: Chapter 4 (2017), directed by Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014)) and set to release in movie theaters on October 20, 2017, just in time for Halloween 2017. Leigh Whannell, Insidious franchise writer, and co-star will write the screenplay, and it is likely he will also return to star as paranormal investigator Specs. Speculation is this new film will take place either before Elise’s fate at the end of the first film or sometime in “The Further” after her fate. Jason Blum, Oren Peli, and James Wan will produce the latest Insidious movie. Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions is backing the film with Universal Pictures set for domestic distribution duties.
