CONFIRMED. After hitting a home run with Paranormal Activity 3, Bloody Disgusting has exclusively learned that both Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman will be returning to direct Paranormal Activity 4 for Paramount Pictures. I have yet to confirm if the duo are in final talks or if the ink has dried*, and have asked Mr. Disgusting to dig into this for me.
*To clarify – I meant they’re at least in final talks.
The studio slated the return of Katie, Kristi and the not-so-friendly ghost Toby for October 19, 2012.
Joost and Schulman co-directed Catfish independently before it was acquired by Universal. They then boarded the mega-franchise created by San Diego director Oren Peli. PA 3 has made over $200 million at the box office worldwide. The entire Paranormal Activity franchise has pulled in approximately $577 worldwide at the box office alone making it a near billion dollar franchise when you include home video.
