Paramount Confirms Paranormal Activity 4

Paramount Pictures is celebrating today.  The studio announced it has topped all of the other studios in terms of worldwise box office.  They won the pissing contest earning $5.17 billion in worldwide sales.  Interesting?  Sure.  But what some folks are overlooking in Paramount’s press release is confirmation that, heretofore has only been speculation, the Paranormal Activity saga will indeed continue this fall.

The press release states:

In 2012, Paramount’s release slate highlights include “World War Z,” a zombie thriller starring Brad Pitt and directed by Marc Forster, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” the next installment in the global franchise starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Channing Tatum, a new chapter in the “Paranormal Activity” franchise, and “The Dictator,” starring Sacha Baron Cohen and directed by Larry Charles, the team behind “Borat.”
Of course, this is a no brainer.  Paranormal Activity 3 grossed over $200 million worldwide.  I’ll be curious to see who they bring in to direct.  Are Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman of part three available?
