Well, that didn’t take long. Probably not realizing his words would be splashed all over the interwebs quite so literally, and likely sending Jason Blum into panic, horror master James Wan has already walked back his assertion that he was “finished with the horror genre.”
Answering a blogger’s tweet, Wan declares he’s probably not exactly retired from the genre just yet, saying “of course” he will return to his favorite genre:
@scottEweinberg if I ever come back to horror (who am I kidding, of course I will), would love to do all-out an SLASHER or ZOMBiiiiEEEE..!!!

Not being much of a horror fan, I am all for Wan branching out into other genres like next summer’s Fast & Furious 7. Mostly so I can finally watch one of his movies. But with his Insidious: Chapter 2 opening to more than $40 million just this weekend, the second highest horror opening of the year, behind only his other horror movie The Conjuring, it’s not hard to see why the horror genre may not be ready to lose him completely just yet.
