Five days ago we exclusively broke the news that Paramount Pictures is planning something special for their October 19th release of Paranormal Activity 4. Fans who stay post-credits will be treated to a short clip teasing the 2013 release of the studio’s unnamed Latino Paranormal Activity spinoff. It was confirmed last night via an AICN reader who attended an early test screening. Since it’s a spoiler, we’ve added the descriptions after the break.
The film was first reported on in April. Christopher Landon (Disturbia) will write and direct the project, described by sources as a “cousin” to the Paranormal movies but actually not a sequel or reboot. The movie will be Latino-themed, will star a Latino cast and will tackle Catholic-based paranormal mythology. It will not, however, be in Spanish. Landon also penned both Paranormal Activity 2 and 3.
PA4, from creator/producer Oren Peli, utilizes modern technology as it follows a family that lives across the street from a group of witches. Catfish duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, who helmed the third film, direct once again.
Via AICN reader Ace Rimmer: “As for the post credit scene, it bares no immediate relationship to the main story and is no more then a small tease. If you’re curious here’s a SPOILER breakdown.
An unknown person enters a convenience store on what appears to be a street in Mexico. He calls out in spanish and is surprised by an old woman who talks quickly and urges him back out the door. That’s it. The implication is, witches are elsewhere and creepy activity can’t be far behind.“
Not much, but it’s there. Now speculate.
