A further delay hits the next film in the Paranormal Activity series...

Another delay is in store for the planned Paranormal Activity 5. Originally planned for release in October 2013, the movie was pushed back to October 2014 towards the end of last year. Furthermore, spin-off film Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones was slotted in for a January 2014 release, where it did decent business when it hit cinemas.

But another delay has now hit the new Paranormal Activity sequel. Paramount has revealed that it's pushing the next film back by two more years, and it's added the movie to its 2016 slate. Whether the studio will pursue an independent follow-up to The Marked Ones to fill the gap remains to be seen.

We've no word on who's directing Paranormal Activity 5 yet either. We hope it picks up directly from the ending of Paranormal Activity 4 though. That could be fun.
