A Paranormal Activity Reboot Is Officially Happening

When Paranormal Activity was first released in 2007, it was the ultimate horror film. Filmed using the 'found footage' technique, part of its horrifying appeal was that it just felt so real.

And now, it's been confirmed that a new film is on the way, with franchise creator Oren Peli back at the helm.

Although the plot details of the reboot are being kept a closely guarded secret, according to The Hollywood Reporter the story will be told in the same 'found footage' style as the previous films.

Filmmaker Will Eubank - who recently directed thriller Underwater - is tipped to be directing, while Jason Blum and Oren Peli will produce and Steven Schneider and Christopher Landon will serve as executive producers.

The movie is expected to be released next year, with 4th March 2022 currently pencilled in as a possible date.

Created by Peli, there are six Paranormal films to date, with the first Paranormal Activity released in 2007. Paranormal Activity 2 followed in 2010, while the third movie dropped a year later and the fourth in 2012.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones followed in 2014, while the final film, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension arrived in 2015.

Peli wrote, directed and shot the first film - a horror which delved into the spooky and supernatural happenings taking place within a family home.

The video, phone and CCTV footage style storytelling made the movie so life like, many were left Googling whether it was real.

We've got a feeling we're going to be absolutely terrified watching this, and we cannot wait!
