"I don’t know where they would want to go with the series, but I never close any doors. There’s no big red door that’s closed,” teased Wilson.
"Scream King" Patrick Wilson could make a return to the Insidious franchise but wants a good storyline centered around his character, Josh Lambert, for the fifth edition of the franchise. Patrick Wilson, who's a prominent face in the horror genre, said that he wouldn't close doors on any possible sequel.
There have been rumors of another sequel in the Insidious franchise but the producers are yet to confirm the news fo the same. The Insidious franchise has raked $539.4 million worldwide and the producers including Jason Blum and James Wan will be hoping to continue the franchise.
Wilson isn't ruling out a return to the horror franchise. “I never look at anything as closed. I don’t know what you would do, but I never felt like it was closed," said Wilson in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
"I just felt like for Josh Lambert, we’ve already seen him possessed and free of possession. There’s not a whole lot for that guy to do anymore. I don’t know where they would want to go with the series, but I never close any doors. There’s no big red door that’s closed,” said Wilson.
The first two movies in the franchise showed Patrick Wilson's character fighting a demonic entity referred to as the Red Face Demon. In the second sequel, Josh Lambert gets possessed by the evil Bride in Black.
He confirmed that he was in constant touch with the producers but there's been no discussion centered on the Insidious franchise. "I see these people a lot, but there’s no script or anything like that. I just don’t know what you’d do, but I haven’t talked specifically about anything. I talk to Jason Blum every so often, and we’re friends. And I’ll see Leigh (Whannell)... James keeps an eye on that, but I don’t know where you’d go," said Wilson, referring to the character arc of Josh Lambert in the franchise.
The last two films in the series were centered around Lin Shaye's character Elise Ranier. It could also be the case with the fifth movie, with Lin Shaye dropping hints. "I've heard rumblings. There's no script as far as I know. [With] Elise, The Last Key pretty much completed my story as a character. I kind of have an idea what the story might be about, and that I don't feel comfortable talking about, because nothing has been brought out into the open," said Shaye, according to Daily Dead.
"But as far as I've heard, there will be another one. And it'll be sort of a different setup in a way, of some of the same characters from a couple of the past episodes, too. It'll probably be in the next year or so, because Blumhouse is a little busy, as we all know. But I've got my fingers crossed there will be one more, I hope."
Wilson's collaboration with James Wan continues with Aquaman 2 that's scheduled for a release in 2022. He also returns to the Conjuring franchise with Conjuring 3, produced by Wan.
Wilson and Vera Farmiga will reprise the roles of paranormal investigators and authors Ed and Lorraine Warren and the film will be released in 2020.
