Paranormal Gets A Latino Cousin

“Paranormal Activity” producers Jason Blum and Oren Peli are re-teaming with that series’ sequel scribe Christopher Landon for a latino-themed pseudo-spinoff to the highly successful micro-budget franchise reports Heat Vision.

Landon will write and direct the film which isn’t a sequel, reboot or direct spinoff of ‘Paranormal’. Rather it’s described as being a “cousin” to those films, the key difference being this having a latino cast and tackling Catholic-based paranormal mythology. Despite the different audience demographic focus however, the film will be spoken in English (not Spanish).

Paramount aims to shoot the project soon and a release could be ready as early as January, taking the same slot they gave surprise hit “The Devil Inside” earlier this year. Steven Schneider will also produce.
