Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension is going where no other Paranormal Activity movie has gone before: Into the Third Dimension. Yes, it has been confirmed that Paramount Pictures is planning to release the fifth chapter in their popular horror franchise in 3D. This will be the first Paranormal Activity movie released in 3D. It also holds the distinction of being one of the first found footage movies shot in the immersive format.
Can a Paranormal Activity IMAX release be far behind? We're not sure at this point, but Bloody Disgusting confirms that when Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension hits theaters this March, we will be required to wear those cumbersome glasses. This may sound odd, as the found footage genre doesn't necessarily seem like a good fit for 3D. But it is being speculated that the 3D is being brought in specifically for use in the The Ghost Dimension. The 3D will be done using post-conversion technology.
Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension is being fast-tracked, with Paramount set to have the film in theaters by March 13, 2015. That is just four months away. Gregory Plotkin (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) is directing from a script by Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark. The story will reportedly follow a video game designer who moves his family from New York to Palo Alto, where they are greeted by the infamous Demon of the the franchise.
