Dermot Mulroney to Star in ‘Insidious: Chapter 3’

Dermot Mulroney will star in “Insidious: Chapter 3” with Leigh Whannell directing from his own script.

Shooting will start July 7. Whannell made the announcement Wednesday on his Twitter account:

Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions, which produced the first two “Insidious” movies, are producing the next installment along with Oren Peli and James Wan. Steven Schneider, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Peter Schlessel, Lia Buman and Entertainment One’s Xavier Marchand are exec producing.

Focus Features has locked in an April 3 release for U.S. theaters and eOne will distribute the picture in Canada, U.K. and Spain. Sony will distribute the picture in the rest of the world.

Mulroney was most recently seen in “August: Osage County” and “Jobs.”

The first two “Insidious” films starred Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Lin Shaye, Ty Simpkins and Barbara Hershey, but it’s unclear if any will return.

The first “Insidious,” made for $1.5 million, focused on the Lambert family and their son confronting demons that possess the young boy. The film was picked up by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival and went on to gross $97 million worldwide.

“Insidious: Chapter 2,” made for $5 million, centers on the protagonists moving into a new house, only to find that the demons have followed the family. Worldwide grosses hit $160 million.

Mulroney is repped by WME.
