Okay, let’s try and get this entire Paranormal Activity debacle up to speed…
Building upon our exclusive reports from earlier Wednesday evening, TheWrap has learned that Paramount Pictures is aiming to get Paranormal Activity 5 in theaters by next October – and that the newly minted January 3, 2013 release date is for the Latino spin-off, tentatively titled OT: Oxnard Tapes (pictured above, video teaser below).
The site explain that the as-of-yet untitled spin-off — a found-footage flick targeted at Latino audiences that’s directed by Paranormal 2 writer Christopher Landon — is finished and has been testing well.
Paranormal will still be featured prominently in the marketing, another individual said. Because the film remains somewhat separate from the Paranormal Activity films, it will open in January — where Paramount had success with The Devil Inside.
Paranormal Activity 5, meanwhile, doesn’t even have a script – let alone cuts for the studio to see. Paramount and producer Jason Blum have not found an idea they like, though Greg Plotkin, who edited the last three Paranormal films, is likely to direct.
One individual stressed that it was far too early to talk about directors. Paramount had no comment and Blum did not respond to a request for comment, they explain.
