A couple of weeks ago Paramount Pictures decided that Johnny Knoxville’s Bad Grandpa would be a scarier option than fielding a Halloween 2013 Paranormal Activity 5 release. Despite 2013 being a PA free year, there will now be two franchise entries in 2014.
The studio has confirmed that it will push the direct sequel, Paranormal Activity 5, to an October 2014 release date with the Latino-centric spin-off, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, releasing some nine months beforehand in January.
Although there has been no clear indication as to what we can expect from Paranormal Activity 5 there are rumours flying around that the plot will be rooted in a Catholic-based investigation into the supernatural.
Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones arrives January 3rd, 2014 whilst Paranormal Activity 5 arrives October 24th, 2014.
