'Insidious' Producer To Do Same Thing Again But Now with Aaron Eckhart

While some successful film producers just sit around waiting for others to reap the profits of knock-off products, Insidious's Jason Blum has decided to beat them to the punch by basically doing his own knock-off in Incarnate. For this one, Aaron Eckhart is taking over for Patrick Wilson as token 40-something blonde guy who was in a superhero movie but still doesn't cost too much (Matthew Modine is presumably next in line). He'll reportedly play "an unconventional exorcist who can tap into the subconscious of the possessed"; as expected, the possessed is yet again some young boy. The film has a script from Dark Tide writer Ronnie Christensen and will be directed by Journey 2: The Mysterious Island's Brad Peyton.

The news comes just a day after Blum and chums announced development on a third Insidious film, the natural result of their doing the same thing over and over with ever-improving results. Somehow the definition of "insidious" has become the opposite of the definition of "insanity." At least until Jason Blum finally does Insanity, starring Matthew Modine.
