Hopefully you got your Paranormal Activity fix from the spin-off, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, because even though Paranormal Activity 5 was originally set to hit theaters on October 25, 2013 and then October 24, 2014, Paramount Pictures is now gunning for an October 2015 release instead.  At least that’s better than the 2016 date Paramount Pictures International teased at CineEurope last month.

On top of that, it also looks as though Millennium Films and Lionsgate might be giving the Texas Chainsaw franchise another go and possibly even nix plans to run with the cliffhanger from Texas Chainsaw 3D and go with a prequel idea instead.  Hit the jump for more on both stories.

Millennium Films Moves Forward with TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D Sequel

I guess this was fairly inevitable.  Coming off the opening weekend box office success of the sequel Texas Chainsaw 3D, Millennium Films is now moving forward with a follow-up film.  The news was first reported by Bloody Disgusting, and Deadline now confirms that production on the untitled sequel is set to get underway later this year in Louisiana.  Producer Carl Mazzocone and executive producers Mark Burg, Avi Lerner, Tobe Hooper, Trevor Short, John Thompson, Danny Dimbort, Lati Grobman, and Christa Campbell will all return.

Despite scathing reviews, Texas Chainsaw 3D bested the likes of The Hobbit and Django Unchained to land the number one spot at the box office last weekend with $23 million.  BD’s report notes that the producers have acquired the rights to make up to 7 Texas Chainsaw sequels, so depending on how further installments fare, Leatherface may be sticking around for some time to come.
