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

September 17, 2013


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.
