The Paranormal Activity franchise is moving forward with the sixth addition. Paranormal Activity 5 is set to begin shooting next month in Los Angeles just in time for a Halloween 2014 release on October 24th. The project is being directed by Gregory Plotkin.
Christopher Landon, the director behind Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, said,
“Gregory Plotkin, who is directing, he’s been the editor on all of these and if there’s anyone who knows these movies, it’s him because he has to sit with all of the footage all day long. I think he’s going to take it in a cool direction. We obviously have discussions about it because we want the movies to be connected. So, we were talking at the end of [The Marked Ones] because it’s going to be tied to what they’re doing in the fifth film.”
Ryan, Emily, their 6-year-old daughter Leila, and Mike, Ryan’s younger brother (essentially a less fitter, less funkier version of his brother) essentially.
Ryan, 26-31, is described as a ‘big kid’, he’s a video-game designer who has relocated his family from New York to Pala Alto for a cushy gig at Rockstar Games.
Though somewhat of a hippie (she’s into organic food, loves the arts and music, won’t let her daughter eat Gluten, and sports tattoos), Wife Emily is considerably more serious than her young husband – she’s constantly on the go, does Yoga, and though loving, has an air of maturity about her. Her sister died a year before.
Their daughter Leila seems to be a mixture of both – a bit of a fearless, opinionated tomboy.
And it goes without saying, Ryan and Emily’s family quickly realizes something is not OK within their new house.
Apparently we can also expect to see Katie Featherston to return as Katie. However, at this moment we don’t know how it will fit into the ongoing story and previous films.
