The Paranormal Activity franchise, which gave birth to Blumhouse, has run its course. Found-footage has run its course. We said goodbye to the franchise with 2015’s The Ghost Dimension, and Jason Blum has kept his word that it would conclude the series. But that doesn’t mean he won’t eventually resurrect it.
In an interview with CinePOP, Blum explained that he would be open to the idea of one day rebooting Paranormal Activity, joking that if Christopher Landon had an idea he would love to hear it. Landon, of course, wrote four of the films and eventually directed The Marked Ones.
The six Paranormal Activity movies topped $400M here in the States with it hitting $890M worldwide. It would only make sense for the franchise to eventually be rebooted, although it would be nice to see it filmed traditionally and really put Toby front and center.
