Barbara Hershey Also Returning for James Wan's 'Insidious Chapter 2'

With Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins and Lin Shaye all returning for James Wan's sequel to Insidious, many fans of the horror hit were wondering if Barbara Hershey was going to end up back in the mix. Now their question has been answered as Deadline reports Hershey has signed on to reprise her role of Lorraine Lambert, mother to Wilson's Josh Lambert in Insidious: Chapter 2. Again, we're still not sure how the story is going to play out following the ominous events at the end of the first film that seemed to spell doom for at least one of the cast members already confirmed to return, but that's horror for you.

After being made for just $1.5 million and raking in just over $97 million at the worldwide box office, the horror film from James Wan was one of the most successful films of 2011. Writer Leigh Wannell is returning to script the sequel which starts shooting early next year, and plans to release on August 30th, 2013. That's a pretty quick turn around, but since this is a low budget horror, it won't be too hard to pull off. While I have qualms with the second half of the first film, I'm interested to see what terror comes this time around.

I enjoyed Insidious, had some good creepy imagery. I'm glad everyone seems to be coming back, for continuity's sake. Look forward to it.
