Paramount Pictures Chairman Jim Gianopulos has announced that a new chapter in the “Paranormal Activity” franchise is officially in development at the studio.
Speaking at the CineEurope convention, Gianopulos says: “We are partnering with uber horror producer Jason Blum to bring a new installment of Paranormal Activity.”
The first “Paranormal Activity” hit ten years ago, setting off the found footage horror craze. The first film, made for just $15,000 dollars, went on to gross $193 million worldwide. Five sequels followed, culminating in 2015’s “Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension”.
All up, the six movies so far have brought in over $890 million worldwide.
