Paramount Pictures has given Paranormal Activity 5 the new title of Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, while pushing it from October 24, 2014 to March 13, 2015. The horror sequel will go up against Disney's Cinderella and Warner Bros.' Heart of the Sea in its new release date. The October 24 date is currently occupied by Lionsgate's John Wick, A24's Laggies and Universal's Ouija.
We reported in July that the story centers on a new family comprised of video game designer Ryan, his wife Emily, his younger brother and his 6-year-old daughter Emily, who all discover evil activities in their new house. No cast members have been confirmed for Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, which is being directed by Gregory Plotkin from a script by Jason Pagan and Andrew Stark, based on characters by Paranormal Activity franchise creator Oren Peli.
2013 was the first year that didn't feature a Paranormal Activity movie since the franchise started in 2009. This year was supposed to feature two new additions, with January's Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and Paranormal Activity 5, but now fans will have to wait a few more months for the horror sequel.
The studio has also shifted the release of another horror film, Scouts Vs. Zombies, which moves from March 13, 2015 to February 20, 2015. The movie will go up against Open Road Films' The Gunman, Relativity Media's Jane Got a Gun and Disney's McFarland USA in its new release date. Scouts Vs. Zombies stars Tye Sheridan and Logan Miller stars as a group of Boy Scouts who, just before their latest camp out, must save their town from a zombie outbreak. David Koechner, Cloris Leachman and Halston Sage co-star in the thriller.
