James Wan's latest horror film, "Insidious: Chapter 2" banked $41 million in its opening weekend. This is a massive feat for a horror movie. Upon the sequel's success, Blumhouse Productions and eOne have announced that they are going forward with a third installment in the franchise.

Recently, Wan sat down for an interview with MovieFone and revealed that "Insidious: Chapter 2" would be his last foray into the horror genre, "I'm going to go on record and say I am finished with the horror genre. 'The Conjuring' and 'Insidious: Chapter 2' are my two last scary movies. I spent the last ten years of my life doing this. It's time for a change, for goodness sake!I'm going to go on record and say I am finished with the horror genre."

While Wan won't be returning to direct "Insidious 3," don't worry, series co-creator and co-writer, Leigh Whannell ("Saw, "Insidious," "Insidious: Chapter 2"), has officially signed on to pen the upcoming third chapter. Jason Blum will also be returning to produce.
