What's that you say? You're already sick of the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY films? Well that's not gonna stop Paramount from bringing us another entry in the successful franchise as we'll be seeing PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 5 haunting theaters later this year (good news for those of us who dig the films! Yes, we exist!) and today we've learned some details on what kind of characters we'll be seeing onscreen come October.
Moviehole is reporting that Paramount and director Gregory Plotkin are rushing to slot a cast in for the fourth sequel to Oren Peli’s indy smash. While it’s likely we’ll be seeing ‘Katie’ again – series star Katie Featherston – being that we’ve been promised more info on what her and baby Tobey are getting up to, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 5 will largely feature new characters. Those parts are currently being filled and here are the casting breakdowns:
- Ryan, Emily, their 6-year-old daughter Leila, and Mike, Ryan’s younger brother (essentially a less fitter, less funkier version of his brother) essentially.
- Ryan, 26-31, is described as a ‘big kid’, he’s a video-game designer who has relocated his family from New York to Pala Alto for a cushy gig at Rockstar Games.
- Though somewhat of a hippie (she’s into organic food, loves the arts and music, won’t let her daughter eat Gluten, and sports tattoos), Wife Emily is considerably more serious than her young husband – she’s constantly on the go, does Yoga, and though loving, has an air of maturity about her. Her sister died a year before.
- Their daughter Leila seems to be a mixture of both – a bit of a fearless, opinionated tomboy.
And it goes without saying, Ryan and Emily’s family quickly realizes something is not OK within their new house.
PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 5 is scheduled to begin shooting next month in Los Angeles.
