This just in: , the genius director of scare-your-pants-off horror movies like The Conjuring and the upcoming Insidious: Chapter 2 has announced that he wants to stop making horror movies. "For the love of all that's good in the world, why?" I hear you cry, en masse. Apparently Wan is concerned he'll become 'the horror guy' and that he won't have opportunities to branch out into other genres.

'I'm going to go on record and say I am finished with the horror genre. Conjuring and Insidious 2 are my last two scary movies,' Wan told Moviefone. The talented horror helmer, who previously directed the first Saw movie, recently signed up to helm on the forthcoming Furious 7.

"Hollywood puts you in a box," he added. "If you do a successful comedy, then you’re know as The Comedy Guy. If you do a successful car chase movie, then you become that guy. So I'm a student of cinema, so I just want to make sure I get the chance to make other kinds of films."

Over to you, gang. Does James Wan make a good point? Or should he just stick to what he knows he's talented at?
