Lin Shayne, who played Elise in the previous Insidious films, spoke about working on the third chapter in an interview dated June 9.
Shayne spoke with The Signal about Elise returning for Insidious 3 and working with Leigh Whannell who will be directing the film.
When asked what fans can expect about the future of Elise, the actress was careful not give anything away.
"I'm not telling you," she said. "But it's a wonderful story and Elise is very prominent in the story."
She also spoke about Whannell, who wrote the first two movies and will now be taking on directing duties with this one. Shayne was also asked if Whanell had given her any sort of direction while filming the first two movies, which were directed by James Wan.
"No. He was, as writer, very present in the first two. When there was discussion of changing lines and stuff or standing on something, he was very involved with that," she said. "I know he's really excited about directing it. I'm very excited to have him direct it. No one knows the franchise, the story and the feel of the film more than Leigh and James [Wan]. They still are the creators basically so I think it's very exciting to have Leigh step into this next step of his career and create something special. I'm looking forward to creating something special with him."
