SXSW 2014: Leigh Whannell Offers Quick Update on Next Saw Film and Insidious 3
Our brothers in harm over at Bloody Disgusting caught up with Leigh Whannell to get the scoop on two of the filmmaker/actor's most well known franchises, Saw and Insidious. What did he have to say? Read on!
Pertaining to Insidious 3...
"I can say that it’s not dealing with Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson’s characters anymore. We thought it would be best to wipe the slate clean and tell a new story. But Lin Shaye will be back, and we will be back. It actually felt a lot like writing the first one because you’re dealing with new characters. You don’t have to follow the throughline of the others; it’s a fresh start. It doesn’t follow the ending of the second one."
Pertaining to the 8th Saw film...
"I’ve seen a lot of tweets about it, but I haven’t heard anything more about it. I don’t think they’re about to go into production on it quite yet; Lionsgate would let me know."
