Good lord...seven months from release and you don't even have a writer yet?

Par for the course for the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY crew, who just seem to hatch, shoot, edit and distribute each flick within a 3 month time frame. Nothing's changed this go around...as producers notice the season about to officially change to spring, a new scribe has been named...

THR claims that "The River" producer Zack Estrin (seen right) will pen the 4th installment of the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY franchise. Estrin has a good working relationship with Oren Peli, showrunner of "The River," who also wrote and directed the first P.A. film in '09. Estrin also has genre-writing experience, having done episodes of "Prison Break" and "No Ordinary Family." Word is, while no official deal has been finalized, P.A. 3 directors Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost will return to helm P.A. 4 as well.

As also usual, plot details for the new entry are being shrouded. Hell, if the script isn't even written, how can details leak? One thing's for certain, the flick is still slated to open October 19th, a date given extra incentive to hint with the release-pull of HALLOWEEN 3D. This Estrin fella better get crackin'...

P.A. 3 star Sprague Grayden

Extra Tidbit: You a fan of the Estrin hire? Are you glad Joost and Schulman are in talks to return?

Haven't watched the River yet, though just watched PA3 the other night, while Im not the biggest found footage fan, I do like these movies, though I hope they get back on track story wise rather than prequel territory. Not sure where exactly they'll go next but hope it's not a COPS-style hunt for Katie and Hunter.

Could go either way.

I'm fine with this because I'm beginning to like The River more and more with each passing episode so Zack Estrin seems to know how to creep viewers out but returning duo Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost better step up their game this time and work on a more effective and less ludicrous story and a better ending but they know how to create inventive scares so we will just have to see but I have ZERO expectations this time around. Best of luck though.
