In some disappointing news, director James Wan has revealed that he has directed his last horror film. Having directed SAW, the underrated DEAD SILENCE, INSIDIOUS, THE CONJURING and the upcoming INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2, Wan revealed the news in an interview with Moviefone.
The director said, “I’m going to go on record and say I am finished with the horror genre. CONJURING and INSIDIOUS 2 are my two last scary movies. I spent the last ten years of my life doing this. It’s time for a change.”
In terms of a dramatic change, Wan is now signed on to direct FAST AND FURIOUS 7. A film that’s of no interest whatsoever to anyone at Starburst, for what it’s worth, the director added, “I love that universe. I love the world that they created. I want to honour that world and be mindful of how much fans enjoy that world. I don’t want to mess that up too much, but at the same time, I definitely would love to bring my own stamp to it. I think what I do best is, I love creating tension and suspense.”
One of the brightest horror talents of recent years, it will be a shame to see Wan walk away from the genre.
As for INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2, that’s due in cinemas on Friday.
