James Wan Is Awesome!

James Wan from "Saw," "Dead Silence," and "Insidious" is out to rock our haunted world even more and more and more! He is working on two films, "Insidious 2" and "The Warren Files."

According to Variety:
The Warren Files and has added young actors Mackenzie Foy and Joey King to its cast list. Though she is only 12 years old, Foy is already recognized by millions because she plays Renesmee, the daughter of Edward and Bella, in the Twilight franchise, while King is best known for her role in 2010's Ramona and Beezus. King is also in a pair of upcoming high-profile movies, including Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great And Powerful. The film, which is based on a true story, is about the Perron family, who, during the 1970s, claimed that they lived among the dead. Though the trade doesn't say it explicitly, one can assume that King and Foy will be playing the daughters in the Perron family, with Livingston and Taylor playing the parents. Wilson, who previously worked with Wan on Insidious, and Farmiga will be playing investigators looking into the Perrons' claims. Chad and Carey Hayes wrote the script and production is scheduled to begin later this month on location in North Carolina.

I'm digging the cast--here's the parents in the film (Lily Taylor and Ron Livingston):

"Insidious 2"

"Insidious 2" is planning to hit the theaters in 2013 with the same writer as the first movie and James Wan in the director's chair again.

It is hard to get a good ghost-themed horror movie maker out there. I think Wan has some amazing strengths and a few weaknesses, but I will always see whatever he offers because us haunted-themed movie goers, we are after his work like the only pub in town.


  1. YAY!

    I thought Insidious was awesome... and had an amazing presence amongst the lame-o slasher teen flicks that were coming out around the same time.

    I can't wait to see what comes in Insidious 2

  2. To be honest, I'm not a fan of this gentleman's work.

    Conversely your new logo is fantastic! Well done.

    I must have fallen out of favor with you madam: my blog is no longer on your blogroll. This saddens me to my quick.

  3. Gol Dangit, Nat! I have left you several messages around my blog about needing your blog address. It is not on your profile. Blogger removed my blog list and I had to rebuild it but I couldn't recall the name of your blog and it's been driving me mad. Please let me know what it is. The logo is temporary. It is an older one I put back up until the new one is designed.

    1. I thought you had forsaken me, my auburn beauty.

      Here's my blog address:

      Can't wait to see your new logo!

    2. Nat, I am painfully loyal. I remain until you decide otherwise. Steadfastly yours, Red.

  4. I am totally there for Insidious 2!!! Love James Wan's work!

  6. They should use the telepath Ron Livingston met in Cambodia as a consultant.
