franchise will release two films in 2014, with
Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones
to be followed by
Paranormal Activity 5
The former of those two is a spin-off film set to arrive on 3 January 2014, featuring a predominantly Latino cast and focusing upon a Catholic inquiry into some unholy goings on.
The second is a straightforward sequel, continuing the narrative of the series so far. As is traditional with the Paranormal Activity films, it will arrive in Halloween week on 24 October 2014.
Paranormal Activity 5 had initially been expected to take the January release, but appears to have been shunted back to make room for the spin-off.
The film has yet to announce a director, but with a release date now firmly locked in, expect to hear more details in the coming weeks.
