James Wan retires from horror… Maybe… Possibly…
INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 may be in the pipe line, but will James Wan, director of the first two be along for the ride.
Last week, when discussing the next INSIDIOUS movie, he said he was done with the horror genre – via MovieFone.
“I’m going to go on record and say I am finished with the horror genre” he told moviefone. “THE CONJURING and INSIDIOUS 2 are my two last scary movies.“
Then, a twitter discussion with film critic Scott E Weinberg, Wan said:
if I ever come back to horror (who am I kidding, of course I will), would love to do all-out an SLASHER or ZOMBiiiiEEEE..!!!
Wan, who is presently taking helm of FAST 7, has hinted he doesn’t want to be known simply as that horror guy. But maybe it’s also a case of not wanting to return to the well too often. He’s already commented that his minimal involvement in the SAW sequels was down to having told his story in the first one. Maybe that’s how he’s feeling about INSIDIOUS.
What do you think? Do you want Wan back for another round, or did a little fresh blood not hurt anyone?
When we hear anything else we’ll let you know.
