Is 'Paranormal Activity 5' Being Fast-Tracked for a 2015 Release?

31 July 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2013 was the first year since the Paranormal Activity franchise was launched in 2009 that a sequel wasn't released, although fans were supposed to get a double-dose of thrills this year, with the spin-off Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones that debuted in January and Paranormal Activity 5, which was initially set for an October 24 release. Last month, Paranormal Activity 5 was delayed all the way to 2016, but now a new report from Bloody-Disgusting reveals that Paramount is putting the sequel on the fast track for a 2015 release.

While it's believed that Paramount and Blumhouse may still be aiming for that October 24, 2014 date, with director Gregory Plotkin currently "working at lightning speed from a screenplay by Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark," it seems unlikely they'll be able to get the movie done and in theaters over the course of the next two and a half months. A 2015 debut is definitely more likely to happen. »

Could Paranormal Activity 5 Haunt Us Sooner After All?

25 July 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

First October 2014, then January 2015, and then sometime in 2016. Paranormal Activity 5's release has been shuffled around quite a bit, and now we're hearing it could be back in play for late this year or, more likely, 2015.

Bloody-Disgusting got the scoop from a source close to the PA5 production that the powers-that-be are suddenly rushing headlong to get the film out as soon as possible. While nothing's been confirmed, Bloody suggests that Paramount might even be hoping to have the sixth film in the series out in theaters by this October.

That doesn't seem likely, but perhaps Paramount will once more give the movie a winter 2015 release. Bloody goes on to report that director Greg Plotkin is a man on a mission. That mission? To get Paranormal Activity 5 in the proverbial can as soon as possible. The movie was scripted by Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark, both newcomers to the franchise. »

Paramount Moves Paranormal Activity 5 to 2016; Confirms Hansel and Gretel 2

18 June 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

An interesting bit of news regarding Paramount has come our way via The Hollywood Reporter. In an article regarding the studio's presence at CineEurope, it was divulged that Paranormal Activity 5 has been moved to 2016.

The studio also confirmed a sequel to Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters for the same year. The news comes directly from Paramount Pictures International Svp, Emea Edward Ryan, who dropped the news on CineEurope attendees after a screening of Transformers: Age of Extinction.

This is a Big delay to say the least for Paranormal Activity fans, but the extra time could be just what the franchise needs to get it right this time after the misfire of Paranormal Activity 4 and the poor showing of the actually good Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. Gregory Plotkin is going to make his directorial debut on Paranormal Activity 5 from a script by Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark »

Welcome to Yesterday Time Travels to a Later Date

5 February 2014 4:52 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The Michael Bay-produced found footage thriller Welcome to Yesterday (previously titled Almanac) is headed our way a bit later than anticipated. No one is certain when just yet, but we'll let you know when we get something concrete. In the interim cross February 28th off of your movie-going calendar.

Insiders say the release is being postponed to give Bay, who has been busy directing the mega-tentpole Transfomers: Age of Extinction, which opens June 24th, the opportunity to focus on the smaller movie.

Paramount is now mulling a new release date during the summer or fall.

Story Details for Paranormal Activity 5

17 January 2014 8:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Paranormal Activity 5 is gearing up to shoot in Los Angeles next month so that can be released in time for the 2014 Halloween season. The movie is being directed by Gregory Plotkin from a script written by Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark

For some reason the last movie, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, got decent reviews. I personally thought it kind of sucked. But in an interview with Comingsoon writer and director Christopher Landon, talks about the fifth installment of the franchise, saying,

"Gregory Plotkin, who is directing, he's been the editor on all of these and if there's anyone who knows these movies, it's him because he has to sit with all of the footage all day long. I think he's going to take it in a cool direction. We obviously have discussions about it because we want the movies to be connected. So, we were talking at the »

Paranormal Activity 5: Katie Featherston Returns and New Character Details Revealed

16 January 2014 10:35 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2013 marked the first year fans didn't get to see a Paranormal Activity movie since the micro-budget franchise first launched in 2009. Thankfully, there will be a double-dose of found-footage fright this year, with the recently-released spin-off Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and Paranormal Activity 5, arriving in theaters October 25. As is normally the case, no plot details have been confirmed regarding Paranormal Activity 5, although today we do have information about the new characters Paramount and the producers are currently casting.

The main characters are Ryan, a video game designer who recently relocated his family from New York to Palo Alto, California, for his new job at Rockstar Games. The producers are seeking an actor between the ages of 26 and 31 to play the character, who is described as a "big kid." Ryan's wife Emily is described as somewhat of a hippie who is into organic food, yoga, the arts and music, »

Character Breakdowns for Paranormal Activity 5 Sequel

16 January 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Whilst franchise off-spin 'Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones' enjoys a smidge more critical respect than the rather lackluster 'Paranormal Activity 4' here's hoping that that long overdue 'break' in proceedings will help Gregory Plotkin's 'Paranormal Activity 5' regain some series composure. Today MovieHole have scored some interesting character info for the fifth installment that appears to be dealing with a brand new family unit once more. How they all relate to the overall story is still anybody's guess, which hopefully doesn't include the makers themselves. Plotkin, who has edited parts 2-4 plus 'The Marked Ones' to date, will direct from a script by Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark. It begins shooting in La next month and is eyeing up its typical Halloween release slot. Check out the newly revealed character deets below. »

First Character Details Revealed for Paranormal Activity 5

16 January 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Gregory Plotkin is gearing up to shoot Paranormal Activity 5 next month in Los Angeles. The next chapter in the series is arriving in time for the Halloween 2014 season when it opens October 24th. On writing duties they have Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark. To date, very few details have been revealed about which direction they're going in story-wise. When we spoke to Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones writer-director Christopher Landon recently, he told us this about the fifth entry: "Gregory Plotkin, who is directing, he's been the editor on all of these and if there's anyone who knows these movies, it's him because he has to sit with all of the footage all day long. I think he's going to take it in a cool direction. We obviously have discussions about it because we want »
