Some nifty news is coming out of the Insidious Chapter 2 camp as Danielle Bisutti (“Parks & Recreation,” “Last Man Standing,” “CSI: Miami,” “Raising The Bar,” “Without A Trace”) has signed on to co-star in an undisclosed role. Read on for more.
Bisutti joins the previously announced Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins, Barbara Hershey, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson, Jocelin Donahue, and Andrew Astor.
Earlier this month, FilmDistrict held a video contest in search of the biggest Insidious fan ever, hosted by director James Wan. The prize? A walk-on role in Insidious Chapter 2. After a nationwide search that generated over 800 fan video submissions and 250,000 views on the film’s official YouTube channel, the winner has been selected!
“We sifted thru tons of entries,” said Wan on Twitter. “Everyone’s a winner in my book, but like Connor Macleod said, there can be only one.”
21-Year-old Michael James Grise from Orlando, Florida, won for his truly inspired and horrifying video. Grise will receive an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles, where he will be joining the cast and crew for his on-camera appearance in the currently shooting production of Insidious Chapter 2. His entry was personally selected by director James Wan, writer Leigh Whannell, and producer Jason Blum. Check out Michael’s entry video below.
Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions is producing (with Alliance financing). FilmDistrict will distribute the film theatrically in the United States, with Sony handling the majority of domestic ancillary rights. Alliance will distribute in Canada, the U.K. (through its Momentum Pictures subsidiary), and Spain (through Aurum); and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions will distribute in all other international territories.
Production is under way in Los Angeles. Look for the film in theatres on August 30th.
Stay tuned for more as it comes.
