First Casting News: James Wan’s Insidious

First Casting News: James Wan's InsidiousThe first casting news has just come in for James Wan’s Insidious, which is currently lensing under the title The Astral in Los Angeles, and things are looking good!

Our bros at Bloody Disgusting just got word that Rose Byrne (Knowing, 28 Weeks Later, The Dead Girl, Sunshine), Patrick Wilson (pictured right; Hard Candy, Watchmen, The Ledge), and Barbara Hershey (Black Swan, Riding the Bullet) have all been cast in Wan’s latest fright flick.

Wan reunites with Saw co-writer Leigh Whannell on the film, which follows a young family that makes the terrifying discovery that the body of their comatose boy has become a magnet for malevolent entities while his consciousness lies trapped in the dark and insidious realm known as The Further.

“Leigh wrote a fantastic script that took a haunted house movie with all the usual conventions and twisted it on its head,” said Wan in a previous interview. Look for more soon!

    I’ve liked both his Saw follow ups and I think this one sounds VERY promising.

    You can tell these guys love the genre.

    You’d figure that with the residuals from the SAW movies that Wan and Whannell would never really have to work again.

    And after watching James Wan’s subsequent films, maybe that would be a good thing.
