‘Insidious: Chapter 4’ Gets Release Date

Universal has set supernatural thriller “Insidious: Chapter 4” for a pre-Halloween release date of Oct. 20, 2017, in the U.S.

Lin Shaye, who has been in all three films, returns as a parapsychologist, with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions financing. Sony will handle international distribution.

“Insidious” launched the franchise in 2011, followed by “Insidious: Chapter 2” in 2013 and “Insidious: Chapter 3” in 2015. The movies had grossed $357.7 million worldwide.

Series newcomer Adam Robitel (“The Taking of Deborah Logan”) will direct “Chapter 4” from a script by co-creator Leigh Whannell, who wrote the trilogy and directed “Chapter 3.”

Horror kingpin Jason Blum is producing again through Blumhouse, which also handles “The Purge” and “Ouija” franchises, along with Oren Peli (“Paramormal Activity”) and co-creator James Wan (“The Conjuring,” “Furious 7”).

Steven Schneider, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Charles Layton are executive producing.

Shaye and Whannel announced the project on the Blumhouse site on Monday with a short video of Shaye reading tarot cards.

The first two films starred Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne as a couple dealing with their son mysteriously entering a comatose state and becoming a vessel for ghosts. The third film was a prequel to the haunting of the family in the first two films, and centered on a girl haunted by a demon.

Robitel is repped by APA.
