INSIDIOUS director James Wan has dived into a new endeavor— producing eight horror films over the next four years.
Variety reports that the SAW creator has inked a deal with Icon Entertainment to shepherd two fright flicks a year to the big screen. The director said, "The idea is to produce small, scary, low-budget pics that I enjoy making. I don't see myself coming up with any romantic-dramedy ideas right now."
HOUSE OF HORROR is set as the premiere tale, to be directed by F. Javier Gutierrez (BEFORE THE FALL) from a story by Wan.
Wan told the publication he was drawn to the project as a way to externalize many of his ideas he wouldn't get the opportunity to direct. On the flip side, he hasn't ruled out the possibility of helming one of the upcoming films himself.
Up next for the filmmaker is the highly anticipated INSIDIOUS, which is currently garnering an overwhelmingly positive response (including ours). The film releases April 1st, but you can catch it a bit earlier in NYC or Austin at The Film Society of Lincoln Center's Film Comments Selects, or as one of the main Midnight attractions at SXSW.
