Paramount Confirms ‘Paranormal Activity’ will Return with a New Sequel

During an appearance at CineEurope, Chairman and CEO for Paramount Pictures Jim Gianopulos made an announcement that a new entry in the Paranormal Activity series officially is in development at the studio. This one will be part seven and the first since 2015.

Gianopulos said, “We are partnering with uber horror producer Jason Blum to bring a new installment of Paranormal Activity.”

2019 marks the ten year anniversary of the first Paranormal Activity film’s release, which exploded at the domestic box office and set the world of horror ablaze with the found footage feature phenomena. The first Paranormal Activity was produced on a budget of $15,000 dollars and went on to gross $193 million worldwide.

The first entry was followed by five sequels, each of which different corners of the vague mythos established in the original and concluding in 2015’s Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. The six movies have brought in over $890 million worldwide, an massive take for their micro-budgets and made the series one of the most fan-favorite horror series in the mid-2000’s.

So far, there is no title for the sequel and details are being kept under wraps.

Check back for more soon on the latest venture of the Paranormal Activity series.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
