If you're attending CineEurope, and felt a chill as you experienced Paramount's portion of the show, it could be because Studio Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos revealed that Paramount is partnering with Jason Blum for a new chapter in the PARANORMAL ACTIVITY franchise. The project has no title to speak of, and plot details also remain scarce at this time, but we do know that the feature is in active development.

So far, the supernatural film series has scared up $900 million at the worldwide box office, with the latest installment, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSIONS having grossed $190 million worldwide. The jump-scare-savvy property first arrived on the scene in 2007, giving moviegoers a thrill as they witnessed found footage of a couple being terrorized by a demonic presence in their new suburban home. As the sequels arrived from beyond the veil, the Paranormal filmmakers presented new and disturbing stories to expand the franchise's fear factor.

Additionally, Gianopulos also shared that production has begun on A QUIET PLACE 2, the much-anticipated sequel to filmmaker John Krasinski's 2018 surprise box office smash. As per the follow-up, Krasinski will reprise his roles as writer and director of the project, with Emily Blunt returning to star. With cameras warming up and ready to roll, the studio has secured a March 30, 2020 release for the suspense horror sequel.
