Paranormal Activity 4

It's simple math. "Paranormal Activity 4" cost $5 million to make + opened to $56 million worldwide this weekend = "Paranormal Activity 5" getting the go ahead. If you keep going to these, they're gonna keep making 'em....

Paramount Pictures has already gone and given the green light to "Paranormal Activity 5," with the standard Halloween release date pegged for 2013. Director and cast have yet to be announced, but considering these movies take about a week to shoot, and are edited over a weekend, those are minor details that can be filled in at the last minute.

Speaking of which, remember that Latino spinoff of "Paranormal Activity" that was in the works? Well, it was teased after the credits of 'PA4' and it's also pressing forward with "Disturbia" co-writer Christopher Landon as the director. He previously helmed the ensemble thriller "Burning Palms" starring Zoe Saldana, Paz Vega, Rosamund Pike, Jamie Chung and Dylan McDermott among others. This seems like a distinct step backwards, but a gig is a gig we suppose. This one will boast a mostly Latino cast, film partially in Spanish and feature the same "demon" (or whatever) from the 'PA' series. And oh yeah, it's gonna be cranked out in time for release next spring.

It's not quality, it's quantity.... [Deadline]
