New writers found for Paranormal Activity 5
Fresh writing talent is brought aboard the Paranormal Activity movie series...
If the original plan had held, then Paramount would have been released Paranormal Activity 5 in just under a month from now. But then things changed a couple of months ago, and the studio pulled that plan relatively late in the day, announcing that Paranormal Activity 5 now wouldn't be with us until October 2014. A pity: Paranormal Activity 4 actually left things on an interesting ending.
The studio has hired in some fresh writing talent anyway to shape Paranormal Activity 5. Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark are to pen the new film, There are no details yet as to which direction they're going to take it, but the movie is set for release on October 24th 2014.
Before that, there's a spin-off film with a Latin theme heading out way. That's called Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, and Paramount is releasing that on January 3rd 2014.
We'll keep you posted on both of them...
