Tuesday, September 17, 2013 5:08 PM | Anonymous

Australian screen writer Leigh Whannell has signed on to pen the third chapter in the Insidious horror franchise. 

Whannell penned "Insidious" (2010) & "Insidious: Chapter 2" (now in theatres) in collaboration with long term filmmaking partner, director James Wan. 

It is still unclear whether Whannell will reteam with Wan for Chapter 3. 

"Insidious: Chapter 2" starring fellow Aussie Rose Byrne won the weekend by taking in $40 million across 3,000 cinemas.

According to Boxoffice Mojo, Chapter 2 recorded the second-highest opening for any film in September, and is in the top 50 grossing horror films of all time.

Chapter 2 was released in US cinemas Friday 13th, 2013. 
Australians have to wait till 7th November for their turn to be terrified.
