'Paranormal Activity 5' Gets Title, Flips Dates with 'Scouts vs. Zombies'
Originally, the next film in the Paranormal Activity franchise was slated to be released this fall, but that's clearly not happening. Instead, Paramount Pictures is releasing the film on March 13th, 2015, taking the release date originally meant for their horror comedy adventure Scouts vs. Zombies. The latter film will now be bumped up for release on February 20th, 2015. In addition, Deadline says the film will be titled Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. But where will the story go, especially after Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, which seemed to be a spin-off, actually tied directly to the original.
Frankly, the end of the The Marked Ones completely renewed my interest in the horror franchise. The series has taken some weird turns, but the twist at the end of the last one was pretty wild. Based on the title, one would assume that this might continue the story from The Marked Ones. And considering how that spin-off tied into the franchise, could this be Paranormal Activity 5 or Paranormal Activity 6? Or maybe it's just Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones 2? All we know is franchise producer Gregory Plotkin is directing. Hopefully we'll have the confusion cleared up once a trailer pops up. Thoughts?
