Star Trek 3, GI Joe 3, Transformers 5 Coming In 2016
"Well, they’ve talked about doing more," Mark Wahlberg told HitFix about possible future "Transformers" films. "When you make a deal on a movie like this, they’re definitely going to want to negotiate those things in advance." And while he's being cagey, he's also correct that these days, studios want to tie down their franchise actors. And let's not forget that last year, Wahlberg was a bit more definitive about his role in the series saying, "I definitely had to sign up for three." Of course, Paramount is banking on audiences showing up, and clearly they're confident they will.

But are we going to get our limits tested in 2014?

And While “Paranormal Activity 5” was formerly scheduled for release in the series’ customary pre-Halloween slot, Paramount Pictures is shaking things up to make room for another of their cheapie, money-making franchises.

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