A brand-new “Insidious” film has been scheduled for release in theatres. Sony has added the next Blumhouse Productions horror picture, which is co-produced by Screen Gems, to its theatrical lineup. The movie is scheduled for release on August 29, 2025.

No other information about the project was made public, including the involvement of series regulars Patrick Wilson and Leigh Whannell. The recently revealed film differs from “Thread: An Insidious Tale,” an in-universe series spin-off that was initially revealed by Deadline in May 2023 and is reportedly helmed by Jeremy Slater, with Mandy Moore and Kumail Nanjiani in leading roles.

This would be the sixth film in the horror franchise and the first since “Insidious: The Red Door,” which debuted Patrick Wilson as a feature director and featured Ty Simpkins and Patrick Wilson returning to the series, assuming no other “Insidious” installments were released prior to this recently announced one. Despite having a meagre $16 million production budget, the fifth entry proved to be a success at the summer box office, grossing $82 million domestically and $189 million globally.

With director James Wan at the helm, the “Insidious” franchise debuted in 2010 and has since brought in over $730 million in total worldwide. Although the distribution of the series has changed hands over the years, going from FilmDistrict to Focus Features to Universal to Sony, Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions has been the driving force behind each entry, co-producing alongside a number of other production companies. Screen Gems, who previously appeared in “Insidious: The Red Door,” is back for this latest installment.

In an interview with DiscussingFilm prior to the release of “The Red Door,” Blum hinted at a protracted break for the series, stating that the fifth installment “is going to be the last we’re going to see of ‘Insidious’ for a while” and that “It may not be a forever rest, but it’s certainly going to be a very long rest.” As has been the case with the previous “Insidious” films, there is currently no plan in place for number six. This new date from Sony is expected to mean that the dormant time was only 25 months long.
