James Wan’s sequel to Insidious just keeps getting better and better. Hot on the heels of the news that Barbara Hershey will return for the sequel, our friends over at Bloody Disgusting just received word that “Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson and Andrew Astor have officially joined Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins” have also signed on for the next chapter.
More from Bloody Disgusting:
“Whannell and Sampson return as Specs and Tucker, respectively, the two ghost hunters in Wan’s first Insidious. Astor also returns as the young Foster Lambert, the boy whose body is ‘haunted.’
As she did in the first Insidious, Oscar-nominated Hershey will play the role of Lorraine Lambert, the mother to Patrick Wilson’s Josh Lambert and the grandmother to the demon-possessed boy Dalton. We’re told we’ll be seeing flashbacks of various characters in the film that lead up to the events in the first.
Insidious Chapter 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on August 30.
