If you’ve seen “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones” and you’re ready for some additional paranormal action, then you probably know that “Paranormal Activity 5” is due out this October. That’s a long time to wait, though, so here’s a little something to tide you over.
Moviehole has acquired the casting call sheet for “Paranormal Activity 5” which gives a brief description of some of the characters in the upcoming sequel. These are the first major details we’ve heard about the film which is to be directed by Gregory Plotkin. The characters are as follows:
- 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.
The interesting tidbit here is that it specifically lists Ryan as working for Rockstar Games. Not some generic made up video game company. I suppose it’s a way to connect it to the real world, but it’s just weird that they went with Rockstar. At any rate, given that Ryan is somewhat of a tech geek, it stands to reason that he’ll have plenty of cameras to record the paranormal shenanigans.
I really enjoyed the changes that “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones” brought to the series, hopefully 5 will continue that evolution and not devolve back to a generic white family who hear bumps in the night.
