Paranormal Activity 5 gains director and new writers

Despite not having a 2013 Paranormal Activity release, the powers that be are working to give us two Paranormal Activity films in 2014. Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones is a spin-off set for release in January and Paranormal Activity 5 is expected for the Halloween season in October. We now know screenwriters Jason Pagan and Andrew Deutschman are going to write Paranormal Activity 5 and newcomer Gregory Plotkin is on board to direct. This will be Plotkin's directorial debut. He previously served as an editor and co-producer of the previous films.

Plotkin is taking the directorial reigns from directors Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost. The pair previously directed Paranormal Activity 3 and Paranormal Activity 4 as well as the online dating "documentary," Catfish. Pagan and Deutschman are taking over the writing after several different writers, mainly including Oren Peli and Christopher Landon.
