If you are wondering about the next Paranormal Activity film this year – forget about it. Paramount is going to release Paranormal Activity 5 in 2014 instead. The writers of the fifth installment of the popular franchise will be Jason Pagan and Andrew Deutschman. Pagan is also the writer behind the upcoming time travel movie Almanac (also to be released in 2014).
In addition to Paranormal Activity 5, there will be a Latino-cast spinoff film called Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, directed by Christopher Landon (he wrote the screenplay to Paranormal Activity 2, 3, and 4). The Marked Ones will be released on January 3rd, 2014.
As for the “official” fifth film, there are no plot details as of yet. Jason Blum and Oren Peli continue their roles as producers. Release date for Paranormal Activity 5 is October 24, 2014.
