More ‘Paranormal’ activity

Paramount sets fourth film in franchise

In what’s become a tradition for Paramount, the studio’s developing another “Paranormal Activity” feature, its fourth in four years.

The studio disclosed the project Monday as part of an announcement about ending 2011 as the No. 1 studio in worldwide grosses with a record $5.17 billion — $1.96 billion in North America and $3.21 billion internationally.

The studio listed the “Paranormal” project as part of its 2012 slate in addition to “World War Z,” “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and “The Dictator.” It didn’t disclose producers, director or release date.

The first three “Paranormal Activity” features have combined for $581 million in worldwide grosses. The first pic opened in limited release in late September, 2009 while the next two have gone into wide release during the October weekend before Halloween.

The original, written and directed by Oren Peli, carried a production cost of only $15,000 and used the “found footage” technique. It centered on a young couple haunted by a supernatural presence. The two follow-up films were prequels to the original.

“Paranormal Activity 3,” released in October, is a Blumhouse/Solana Films/Room 101 production, produced by Jason Blum, Peli and Steven Schneider with Akiva Goldsman exec producing. It was directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman from a screenplay by Christopher B. Landon.
