Where The Hell Is 'Paranormal Activity 5'?
MTV News - over 3 years
The month of October is almost upon us, and you know what that means. Another low-budget thrill ride from the "Paranormal Activity" series must be around the corner. For the past four years, we've barely survived found footage encounters with a demon named Toby, but this October will be more trick than treat. That's because "Paranormal Activity 5" won't be hitting theaters until next October. So what the hell is going on? First of all, calm down and don't curse. You're not going to have to wait that long to get your fix of first-person demonic terror. "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones" is hitting theaters on January 3, 2014, and it's spin-off of the current series. That movie was made to cash in on the large Latino demographic that the previous installments have drawn with a more Catholic-themed story of horror. There isn't too much more that we know about "The Marked One," besides that Christopher Landon, the writer of "Paranormal 2, 3 and 4," is directing and that the ...

'Paranormal Activity 5' Gets A Halloween 2013 Release Date
MTV News - over 4 years
The world is going to continue to experience some paranormal activity in 2013. Paramount Pictures has announced the release date for "Paranormal Activity 5," which will hit theaters on October 25, 2013. No word yet on which actors will return for the film or who will direct it, but Paramount was quick to announce the film around the time "Paranormal Activity 4" hit theaters. That film has gone on to gross $53.5 million in the United States so far, which seems to have been enough to get Paramount to want another incarnation of the low-budget horror series. So far none of the other movies have done as well as "Paranormal Activity," which made $107 million in the US during its entire run. There's no guarantee that directing duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman will return for "Paranormal Activity 5" after helming numbers "3" and "4," but we hope they do. If they come back, we put together a little wish list of changes that we hope they make to the upcoming fifth "Paranormal Activ ...

Of Course: 'Paranormal Activity 5' Coming Soon
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"Paranormal Activity 4" has only been in theaters since last Friday, but that hasn't stopped Paramount from moving ahead with the next chapter in the annual horror franchise. Deadline.com's Nikki Finke reports that the studio and producers Jason Blum and Oren Pell are developing "Paranormal Activity 5" for release in October of 2013. The Deadline piece also relays word of a "Paranormal Activity" spinoff, but that film was first reported by THR back in April of this year. As THR noted six months ago, the spinoff -- which Blum and Pell would produce with Christopher Landon, the writer on the second, third and fourth "Paranormal Activity" films -- will attempt to take advantage of the franchise's large Latino fan base both in the U.S. and abroad. It's expected in theaters early next year. While development of the "Paranormal Activity" franchise is showing no signs of slowing down, ticket sales have unfortunately ebbed: "Paranormal Activity 4" opened at the top of the box of ...

Hollywood Roundup: Steve Carell May Have 'Very Bad Day' And More
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Steve Carell may have himself a very terrible horrible, no good, very bad day. Deadline.com reports that the beloved actor is in talks to join a live action adaptation of the famed children's book "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," which Lisa Cholodenko ("The Kids Are All Right") will direct. Based on the book by Judith Viorst, "Very Bad Day" will be a live-action feature, with Carell potentially starring as Ben. The former "Office" star has done a good job shifting between kids' movies and more adult comedies. He provided his voice in animated films like "Horton Hears a Who" and "Despicable Me," while also starring in features like "Crazy Stupid Love" and "Seeking a Friend For the End of the World." Cholodenko became attached to the project last May. She earned an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay for "Kids Are All Right," which she also directed.

Latino-Themed "Cousin" to Paranormal Activity in Development
Coming Soon - almost 5 years
Heat Vision is reporting that Jason Blum, Oren Peli and Christopher Landon - the team behind the "Paranormal Activity" films - are joining forces again for a "Latino-themed" horror film. The project is being described as a "cousin" to the "Paranormal Activity" series, however, it's not a sequel or a spin-off. A companion piece, perhaps... Landon will write and direct the film, which is currently untitled. All we know right now is that it will feature a Latino cast and the story will be rooted in a Catholic-based supernatural craziness. The goal is to go into production this year for a possible January 2013 release.
